WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. agencies have yet to respond to the federal court’s rejection hours of service rules that came into effect in January.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, its parent Department of Transportation and the Justice Department have not yet decided on their course of action with regards to the ruling, an agency official told media.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled July 16 the rules failed to comply with the congressional mandate that they address driver health.

The FMCSA has a range of options in terms of how to respond apply to the court ruling, including the possibility of an appeal.
