Proposal in response to petitions for reconsideration; request for public comments.

In response to petitions for reconsideration of the final rule on lease and interchange of passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) published on May 27, 2015 and effective on July 27, 2015, FMCSA intends to revise the regulations to address ``chartering'' (subcontracting) and the 48-hour delay in preparing a lease. FMCSA is requesting public comment on the proposed responses to the petitions discussed below. In a final rule published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FMCSA extends the compliance date for the 2015 final rule from January 1, 2018, to January 1, 2019.
