Jan 06, 2021

Arlington, Virginia – American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued this statement following the storming of the U.S. Capitol by rioters: 

 “Today’s breach of the Capitol is abhorrent, and the ATA condemns the anarchy that has occurred.  We strongly support the democratic process our nation has in place to certify the Presidential election, and the U.S. House of Representatives should be able to perform its Constitutional duty, without the threat of violence.”
