The U.S. Department of Transportation announced this week that proposed changes to hours of service (HOS) regulations will be formally published in the federal docket on June 7. The department’s latest “Report on DOT Significant Rulemakings” shows the comment period for the final proposed rulemaking ending on July 26, with changes going into effect at a later date. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) confirmed the posting, but noted that the HOS regulations are still under review by the Office of Management and Budget. “The timeline included in the Department’s April regulatory update reflects FMCSA’s goal to move quickly during this rulemaking process and the Agency is hopeful that goal will be achieved,” an agency source said.
