Congress met late last night and worked furiously through the night to write, vote & pass new emergency laws passed on to President Obama and signed first thing this morning, Friday, July 15, 2016.
These latest laws are a preemptive move after last night's tragedy in Nice, France. The laws aim to curtail any such terrorist strike here in the U.S. by mandating thorough background checks, waiting periods, registration, licensing and proof of intent before buying a truck.
These are the first laws passed in what is deemed a long term fight to enact truck control measures.
