As of August 17, 2019 the FMCSA has released the new HOS rules modification to give us a little more flexible work rules. Back in 2014 when the current rules we under consideration, Truckers For A Cause hosted a conference call on how to make comments with Joe Rajkovacz who at the time was the in the governmental affairs office at OOIDA. Also we had Jim Hill who is a former Secretary of FMCSA. So we would like to make this material available again. It is available at this page
In recent days we have had two surveys posted to the internet to allow officials to obtain some very needed information.
The first of these projects has been undertaken by The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) and Mayo Clinic. This project was taken on to see how effective the National Registry has been and what effect it has had on the medical exam. This survey will consist of actually 3 surveys. One will be for the drivers and another will be for the carriers. These two surveys will be hosted on the ATRI website. The other will be hosted on the Mayo website the address published to the their targeted Network.
Please take this survey by going to the ATRI website.
