Direct Final Rulemaking Procedures

Notice of proposed rulemaking.
FMCSA proposes to amend its regulations by establishing direct final rulemaking procedures for use on noncontroversial rules. Under these procedures, FMCSA would make regulatory changes that would become effective a specified number of days after the date of publication in the Federal Register, unless FMCSA receives written adverse comment(s) or written notice of intent to submit adverse comment(s), received by the date specified in the direct final rule. These new procedures would expedite the promulgation of routine or noncontroversial rules by reducing the time and resources necessary to develop, review, clear, and publish separate proposed and final rules. FMCSA would not use the direct final rule procedures for complex or controversial issues.
