Commercial Driver's License: Oregon Department of Transportation; Application for Exemption

Notice of application for exemption; request for comments.

FMCSA announces that the Oregon Department of Transportation (Oregon) has applied for a limited exemption from the commercial driver's license (CDL) rules concerning acceptable proof of citizenship or lawful permanent residency for citizens of Freely Associated States (FAS) who now reside in Oregon and wish to obtain a CDL. The FAS are the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau. If the exemption is granted, Oregon would be allowed to issue standard commercial learner permits (CLPs) and CDLs to these individuals, rather than issuing non-domiciled CLPs and CDLs. FMCSA requests public comment on the applicant's request for exemption.
