Max Armstrong talks about 'move over' laws, the beef market and the 2016 tornado season.

Max Armstrong offers some insight on "move over" laws requiring drivers to slow and move over if there's an emergency vehicle on the shoulder. Some states are expanding the law to cover all vehicles in the shoulder require you to move over. Max also looks at the strengthening beef market, which appears to be ending the year on a high note. And the industry's eyes are on the new Administration's trade moves after Jan. 20. And he shares that 2016 was a quiet year for tornadoes, with a death toll the lowest in 30 years.
