Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act


This is an update Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act (SAFETEA-LU) has passed. It now allows insulin dependent people with Diabetes able to obtain commercial driver’s licenses. No longer will they be discriminated against and be able to continue their livelihood.

“These regulations are important not only to people with insulin-treated diabetes who are seeking to drive a truck in interstate commerce, but also people in many other industries that look to the government’s standards in their workplace. Anytime a discrimination barrier is torn down – as this bill will do for commercial driving – it will have a profound effect,” said Lawrence T. Smith, Chair of the Board at the American Diabetes Association.

With this change drivers will no longer have to wait three years to obtain their commercial licenses. It was through the tireless work of Representatives Howard Coble (R-NC) and Peter DeFazio (D-OR).

Remember one day at a time. One step at a time.
