FMCSA narrowed the concerns to four major categories that may require regulatory changes:
- Exclusion of “chartering” (i.e., subcontracting) from the leasing requirements;
- Amending the CMV marking requirements;
- Changing the notification requirement;
- Expanding the 48-hour delay in preparing a lease.
Operating company representatives will have ample opportunity to speak about these four issues and provide FMCSA with information on how to address them. FMCSA is encouraging individuals with diverse experience, expertise, and perspectives to attend. All public comments will be placed in the rulemaking public docket.
The roundtable discussion will be held on Monday, October 31, 2016, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time (ET) at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Media Center, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Ground Floor, Washington, DC 20590.
FMCSA advises an agenda for the meeting will be posted on the FMCSA Web site www.fmcsa.dot.gov in the near future.
