Registration and Financial Security Requirements for Brokers of Property and Freight Forwarders; Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) Exemption Application

Notice of final disposition; denial of application for exemption.

FMCSA denies an application from the Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) seeking reconsideration of the Agency's March 31, 2015 denial of the Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents' (AIPBA) application for an exemption from the $75,000 bond requirement for all property brokers and freight forwarders. FMCSA treats the SBTC request as a new exemption application. After reviewing SBTC's application and the public comments, the Agency has concluded that the exemption request should be denied because it does not meet the statutory factors for an exemption.
