WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Transportation is working on three major trucking regulations, but so far target dates not officially known.
This was the message from Joseph Clapp, the first permanent administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, last week to the National Tank Truck Carriers association.
He says the agency will open the U.S. border to Mexican motor carriers, make a decision on Hours-of-Service (H-o-S) regulations for truck drivers, and announce new rules for commercial driver licenses.
While Clapp was unable to offer a precise timetable, a U.S. government Web site suggests the hours changes are expected by March 2003. This date is inline with off-the-record reports from trucking executives who also expect to see Canuck H-o-S regs changed by the spring of 2003.
