Electronic logging device rule proposal published, comment period ends May 27

From: CCJ

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s latest attempt at an electronic logging device mandate has been published in the Federal Register as a Supplemental Notice of
Proposed Rulemaking, and the agency will accept public comment on the proposed rule for 60 days.

FMCSA announced the rule March 13 and released the 250-page document. Click here to see CCJ’s prior coverage for an in-depth look at what’s included in the rule.

After the 60-day comment period, the agency will begin work on crafting a final rule, which is likely to be published later this year.
