Spokane, WA asked in Constitutional Law for Washington

Q: I need help regarding recent CDL laws regarding sleep apnea test and machines.

I am a school bus driver and I just received orders to either pay for a sleep apnea machine (which is outside of my budget, being a father of a two year old and another child on the way) or I lose my job. What legal actions are currently being done to fight the new federal law, if any? In my specific case, I've never felt symptoms of sleep apnea, I lead an active, productive life. I don't feel sleepy or fatigued during the day and I don't lose a lot of sleep. I always wake up feeling fine. I can't afford the thousands of dollars that a second opinion would cost (I took an at-home sleep test from an online company and they gave me the results. I either have to take their word for it or come up with even more money for a second opinion) What legal recourse can I take? (I need the machine by October 14th)

A: The very best thing that you can do is set up an appointment with an attorney who knows all about this sort of thing, and it is not a constitutional law attorney, it is a licensing attorney. Find one on the internet or in the phone book and set up an appointment for a full discussion.
