Upstate Congressman Chooses Trucking Industry Over Victims Rights

I recently wrote to my congressman to oppose federal legislation that would limit the amount of insurance coverage trucks are required to maintain.  Without adequate insurance, a family victimized by a negligent tractor trailer truck may be denied compensation as there will be no way to recover for the losses caused. The company simply closes up shop and re-opens under a different name. While I am not surprised that he supported business over victims rights, I was taken aback at how proud he was to be supporting the trucking industry. Not so much as an acknowledgement of the victims interests in the matter. The email I received from the Congressman Gowdy is below.
