LEGISLATIVE:  (Dave Cazel) – Dave is traveling so Belinda M read his report.  Jan 24 was a lobby day at the State Capital for profiling against motorcycles.  We have a state legislature that says he uses a cell phone while driving and & he thinks he is a good driver so he is not supportive of banning cell phones while driving.  Duane shared that Idaho State Trucking Association is lending their name in the distracted driving campaign. He also spoke with the state director of MADD who will present working with us to their board.  Duane talked to the state director of the state PTA , which has about 10,000 members, who will also submit to their board about working with us.  Idaho Towing Association has had 5 drivers killed this past year while on the side of the road.   The lady Duane talked to suggested he talk to the director and she will make sure he signs off on helping with the distracted driving campaign.  Paul reminded us that Dave Cazel is on the MRF board as membership chairman and finance.
