Minimum Levels of Financial Responsibility for Motor Carriers

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); request for comments.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) proposes amendments to its regulations concerning minimum levels of financial responsibility for motor carriers to allow Canada-domiciled carriers to maintain, as acceptable evidence of financial responsibility, insurance policies issued by Canadian insurance companies legally authorized to issue such policies in the Canadian Province or Territory where the motor carrier has its principal place of business. Currently, Canada-domiciled motor carriers operating in the U.S. must maintain as evidence of financial responsibility, insurance policies issued by U.S. insurance companies. The proposed change would not affect the required minimum levels of financial responsibility that carriers must now maintain under the regulations. This action is in response to a petition for rulemaking filed by the Government of Canada.
