The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has announced that it intends to publish proposed changes to its hours-of-service rules as soon as June 7, 2019*. While we can’t predict exactly what will be proposed, the FMCSA asked for public input in late 2018 on five possible ways it could add more flexibility to the HOS rules for drivers of property-carrying vehicles.
One or more of these changes are likely to appear in the proposal, and together they would provide a little something for everyone (though any final changes could be challenged in court).
* Note that while the FMCSA originally indicated on May 1, 2019, that the proposal would be out as soon as May 8, 2019, the agency revised that anticipated date to June 7, 2019, later that same day.
