An article in PMM Online's June 14 e-newsletter mistakenly identified the parties behind a recent threat to stop drayage service at the Port of Oakland as a protest to impending state truck emission regulations. While the West State Alliance and its trucking firm-members did write to the State Legislature to oppose the California Air Resources Board truck regulations, the group and its members were not the source of the work stoppage threat. This threat originated among some of the 4,400 truck drivers who frequent the Port of Oakland.
