Federal Motor Carrier Safety Admin. Will be Flexible with Livestock Haulers on Hours of Service Rule

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 14:50:41 CDT

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Admin. Will be Flexible with Livestock Haulers on Hours of Service Rule Today Allison Rivera, Executive Director of Government Affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, released the following statement in response to the announcement from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Hours of Service (HOS) regulations:



“We are grateful for FMCSA’s willingness to consider options for flexibility on Hours of Service rules. NCBA will continue to work constructively to find a long-term solution that gives livestock haulers the flexibility they need within Hours of Service to protect the welfare of animals in their care. The proposals released today are a positive step towards focusing on needed changes to Hours of Service, but more specific changes that address the unique realities of the livestock hauling industry are still needed. We will continue to work with FMCSA to provide flexibility for the livestock hauling industry.”



Background


The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) today announced that it is seeking public comment on revising four specific areas of current hours-of-service (HOS) regulations, which limit the operating hours of commercial truck drivers. More details can be found here.
