Why was the MAP-21 final rule on “Transportation of Agricultural Commodities” issued?

The “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” (MAP-21), which was effective October 1, 2012, includes statutory exemptions from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) that apply to agricultural transportation. The final rule revised the FMCSRs to conform to the MAP-21 requirements and required the States to adopt compatible exemptions within three years. Source: 78 FR 16189, March 14, 2013.
