Website open to comment on government rules

| February 25, 2011

For truckers who don’t want to navigate the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website to make comments about regulations or proposals, an alternative is the Regulation Room website.

Regulation Room at http://regulationroom.org is an online public participation website where individuals and groups can learn about and discuss proposed new federal regulations. Regulation Room discussion gets read by the agency because a detailed summary of all comments is sent directly to FMCSA. Regulation Room, a U.S. Department of Transportation open government flagship initiative, is designed and operated by the Cornell University e-Rulemaking Initiative.

The current topic open for discussion on the website is the FMCSA’s proposal to mandate electronic onboard recorders. Comments will be taken through April 4. FMCSA’s website is at www.fmcsa.dot.gov.

    The comment period has been extended by FMCSA, so there is still time to come over to http://www.regulationroom.org and share your thoughts on the proposed rule. We hope you will join in the discussion.

    Thanks,
    The Regulation Room Team
