FMCSA to Hold Second Listening Session Sept. 17 on HOS Proposal

- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that on Sept. 17, it will conduct a second listening session on potential changes to the agency’s hours-of-service rule.

On August 22, 2019, FMCSA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) seeking comment on proposed changes to its hours-of-service (HOS) requirements to provide greater flexibility for drivers who are subject to the HOS rules without adversely affecting safety. The listening session will allow interested persons to present comments, views, and relevant research on topics mentioned above. All comments will be transcribed and placed in the rulemaking docket for the FMCSA's consideration.

The listening session will be held at the U.S. Department of Transportation in Washington and will be webcast to allow remote participation.
