FMCSA officials confirm their HOS response is coming soon

| 11/5/2007

The trucking industry should hear, in a matter of weeks, what the FMCSA has decided on hours of service.

Various trucking media has reported that FMCSA Administrator John Hill has said he expects to issue the agency’s response to a federal appeals court ruling in late November.

In that ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals in the DC circuit set aside the provisions allowing for the 11th hour of drive time and the 34-hour restart.

However, both are still in effect pending the final outcome of the case.
