Application by American Trucking Associations, Inc. for a Preemption Determination on the City of Boston's Routing and Transportation Restrictions Applicable to Certain Hazardous Materials
Notice of application for preemption determination; request for comments.
FMCSA provides notice and invites interested parties to submit comments on an application by the American Trucking Associations, Inc. (ATA) for an administrative determination on whether Federal law preempts highway routing designations issued by the City of Boston (Boston) restricting transportation of certain hazardous materials. ATA submits that Boston failed to comply with the Federal routing requirements set in 49 CFR 397.71 and that such routing designations are therefore preempted under 49 U.S.C. 5125 and 49 CFR 397.69.
