Transportation of Household Goods; Consumer Protection Regulations
Interim final rule; technical amendments.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) amends its interim final rule governing the interstate transportation of household goods (68 FR 35064, Jun. 11, 2003). On August 25, 2003, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) received two petitions for reconsideration of the interim final rule. The petitioners requested both substantive and technical amendments. Today's rule incorporates the technical amendments. Substantive amendments requested by the petitioners will require consideration in a future rulemaking proceeding, to give the public an opportunity to comment. This amended interim final rule will benefit both the industry and consumers by more accurately reflecting current industry practices.
