EFFECT OF DEREGULATING MOTOR CARRIAGE OF AGRICULTURAL COMMODITIES IN TEXAS - AN EXAMINATION OF THE RATE STRUCTURE FOR FRESH VEGETABLES Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Intrastate motor carrier regulation in Texas has been stringently regulated by the Railroad Commission since 1931. In recent years, selected agricultural interests were able to secure passage of legislation that deregulated carriage of selected agricultural commodities. Regression analysis is used to contrast rate structures for selected commodities in the pre- and post-deregulation period in order to identify the impact of deregulation on rate levels. -from Authors
