Feds set date for stability control proposed rule
Postponed publication dates for other rulemaking includes:
- June 27 for an NPRM setting a Carrier Safety Fitness Determination based on crashes, inspections and violation data rather than just the standard compliance review.
- February 2013 for a NPRM to allow drivers with insulin-treated diabetes to operate in interstate commerce without first seeking a FMCSA exemption.
- A June 25 NPRM to create a database for verified positive controlled substances and alcohol test results for CDL holders and refusals by such drivers to submit to testing.
- A Dec 31 final rule to replace the U.S. Department of Transportation number identification system, the commercial registration system, and the financial responsibility system, with a Unified Registration System.
The 2005 Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users mandated the rules regarding diabetes, rogue carrier officials and URS.
