The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) said today it is extending the comment period for its August 23 Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) concerning more flexibility in the Hours of Service for commercial drivers.
The 30-day comment period will be up soon, so the agency said that it is extending the comment deadline from September 24 to October 10 to give a number of trucking and trucking-related organizations more time to file comments.
FMCSA received requests for an extension from the American Trucking Associations, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the National Pork Producers Council, and the National Tank Truck Carriers Inc., among others.
“The agency believes it is appropriate to extend the comment period to provide interested parties additional time to submit their responses to the ANPRM. Therefore, the agency extends the deadline for the submission of comments from September 24, 2018, to October 10, 2018,” FMCSA said in a news release.
Comments on the ANPRM must be received on or before October 10. See more details by clicking on the links below.
