Article 19-A of the State of New York's Vehicle and Traffic Law
Notice of petition for determination of preemption; reopening of the comment period.
On September 12, 2013, FMCSA published a request for comments on petitions submitted by Motor Coach Canada (MCC) and the American Bus Association (ABA) seeking a determination that Article 19-A of the State of New York's Vehicle and Traffic Law governing drivers of passenger-carrying interstate motor vehicles is preempted by Federal Law. The comment period closed on November 12, 2013. The Agency received 6 comments. In view of the passage of time since the initial request for comments, and because ABA recently requested that the docket be re-opened for additional comments, FMCSA is reopening the comment period for 30 days to ensure that all interested parties have an opportunity to comment or provide new information.
