The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will propose a rule Thursday that will, if made final, set criteria by which the agency could immediately revoke the operating authority of brokers and freight forwarders whose surety bonds or trust funds fall below the federally required $75,000 minimum. The agency is also seeking public input on a bevy of other issues as it relates to brokers who can’t pay carriers for loads tendered.
