Administration endorses truck undercharge bill.

The Clinton Administration has endorsed legislation to grant relief for undercharge claims, the National Beer Wholesalers Association has reported.

The NBWA noted that the Senate has passed its undercharge relief bill (S. 932) and the House Public Works and Transportation Committee will vote on its bill (H.R. 2121) this summer.

The NBWA said that both bills would allow shippers to settle liability claims for a small percentage of the undercharge claim amount (around 10 to 20 percent).

According to the NBWA, undercharge legislation almost passed in last year's Congress, and this year, "prospects for enactment look promising."

The NBWA said that undercharge claims have cost beer wholesalers over $1 million in the last several years.
