Rep. Yoder Fights for Custom Harvesters in Kansas


Successfully Includes Truck-Length Exemption in THUD Appropriations Bill

Washington, D.C. – April 29, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Subcommittee passed the 2016 THUD Appropriations Bill, sending it to the full Appropriations Committee for consideration next week. Included in the bill was a narrowly-tailored exemption to allow the Kansas Legislature to modify its truck length laws for custom harvesting equipment, similar to one afforded to Nebraska in 2005. THUD Appropriations Subcommittee Vice Chairman Kevin Yoder issued the following statement after working to ensure the language was included in the legislation:

“Getting this language into the Appropriations bill is a big win for Kansas farmers and small business owners. This exemption, supported by Kansas Highway Patrol, Kansas Department of Transportation, and Kansas Department of Agriculture, will allow custom harvesters to safely and more efficiently move their equipment between Kansas and Nebraska. It’s a commonsense move that will help our Kansas economy without increasing federal spending or adding to our National Debt. It’s another example of the Republican-led Congress working towards removing burdensome regulation and growing our economy from the ground up.”
