Federal Truck Driver HOS Rules and Truck Safety

December 19, 2007

253 SR
The primary focus of the hearing will be on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) interim final rule (IFR) governing truck driver hours of service (HOS) issued on December 10, 2007. This IFR is in response to a July 2007 U.S. Court of Appeals decision vacating key aspects of the FMCSA’s 2005 HOS rule. The Subcommittee will receive testimony on the IFR and related truck driver fatigue and truck safety matters from the FMCSA, truck safety advocates and the motor carrier industry. Subcommittee Chairman Frank R. Lautenberg (D-N.J.) will preside.
