BREAKING NEWS: Senate approves measure to limit FMCSA work on sleep apnea

By Charlie Morasch, Land Line contributing writer | 10/4/2013

Legislation to require a formal regulatory process for any future requirements on sleep apnea for truckers will now move to the White House.

The U.S. Senate agreed by unanimous consent in the early evening hours Friday to approve HR3095, which would require FMCSA to go through its regulatory process and analyze the potential cost of sleep apnea requirements rather than simply issuing guidance to physicians, drivers and motor carriers.

Check Land Line’s website Monday for details about the legislation.
