Hours of Service of Drivers
Notice of public listening session and on-line comment and question session.
FMCSA announces that it will hold a public listening session to solicit comments and information on its notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on hours-of-service (HOS) requirements, which it published in the Federal Register on December 29, 2010. Specifically, the Agency wants to know what factors, issues, and data it should consider as it analyzes responses to its NPRM on HOS requirements for property-carrying commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. The session, which will be held in Arlington, Virginia, will allow interested persons to present comments, views, and relevant new research that FMCSA should consider in its final rule. All comments will be transcribed and placed in the rulemaking docket for FMCSA's consideration. FMCSA also announces that it will hold an on-line comment and question session on the same day, a transcript of which will also be placed in the rulemaking docket.
