What's Coming Down the Road
In 2015, President Barak Obama signed into law a new five-year surface transportation bill, Fixing American’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act). In its passing, the Fast Act mandated government agencies, such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, to review and study key issues such as the Compliance, Safety, and Accountability Program, the Safety Management System, and detention time.
Further, government agencies such as FMCSA, FHWA, NHTSA and OSHA, each have their own mission statements and agendas. Thus, it can be difficult for professional truck drivers to know what is coming down the road with so many government agencies affecting the trucking industry. Therefore, the OOIDA Foundation would like to provide the Association’s members with easy access to those notices, NPRMs, and final rules by providing direct links to the Federal Register
