Currently Pennsylvania does not have any legislation on the books to make electronic logging devices mandatory for intrastate or local operations. 9 or 10 other states already have, or have indicated they are going to adopt eld regulations for intrastate (local) operations on the same timeline as the Feds, two other states (Texas and Florida) have announced they are adopting them for in-state use no later than 2019.
Short answer, and this applies to all operations regardless of in-state or interstate, if you currently do not have to do a paper log book more than 8 out of 30 days then you will not need an eld. Most of the light duty operations will be fine, it is the medium and heavy towers and the companies that also do equipment transport, Landoll work, etc that are going to feel this the most.
I will be speaking on this topic again, next stop is at the American Towman Expo in Dallas, TX Aug 17-19 and most likely also at American Towman in Baltimore.
