FMCSA admits mistake, Congress to roll back HOS – dream on

November 21, 2013

Thursday is a big day for trucking. The last, best hope to rein in regulatory overreach takes root with a hearing before the House Small Business Committee.  Trucking representatives will detail the dreadful operational impacts of the new hours-of-service rule, along with the broader safety and economic consequences. The industry’s top regulator, in turn, will defend every last Part, Subpart and Paragraph. But imagine, if you will, what might happen if the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration admits mistakes were made.
