On June 27, 2017, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) published its report titled, “Improving Motor Carrier Safety Measurement.” This report (published on June 27, 2017) was commissioned by FMCSA consistent with the requirements of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The FAST Act also requires FMCSA to develop an action plan to address any identified deficiencies. There will be a public meeting to discuss the NAS recommendations and to solicit input to be considered by the Agency in the development and implementation of the action plan.
The public meeting will take place on Friday, September 8, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time. A copy of the agenda for the meeting will be available in advance of the meeting here.
The meeting will be held at the FMCSA National Training Center, 1310 1310 N. Courthouse Road, Suite 600, Arlington, VA 22201-2508. Those interested in attending this public meeting must register here. Participants have the option of registering to attend in person, or via webinar.
