Truck Drivers with Contraband Can Lose License

Al Dia, Posted: Jun 22, 2008

AUSTIN--Smuggling undocumented immigrants or narcotics throughout the United States may lead truck-drivers in Texas to lose their commercial licenses, Al Dia reports. Texas Governor Rick Perry has called the legislative proposal "Texas Hold 'Em," a pun on the popular poker game. The initiative is based on an existing federal statute that allows local governments to revoke commercial licenses in cases of human- or narco - traffic. But, Perry explained, poor communication between the federal and state governments has meant that the statute has rarely been used. A more closely adhered rule is a response to the recent increase in human and drug trafficking from Mexico to Texas.
