A bill to allow small carriers, including single-truck owner-operators, to forgo use of electronic logging devices and return to using paper logs has been filed in the U.S. House.

Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) introduced the legislation, H.R. 1697, on Tuesday into the House’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

The bill, dubbed the Small Carrier Electronic Logging Device Exemption Act, would exempt all carriers with 10 trucks or fewer from the ELD mandate, meaning they could revert back to using paper logs to record duty status.
