ATA Filing Means No Regulatory Changes For Now

ATA and FMCSA Filings Delay Changes, Seek Lengthy Stay

On September 7, 2007, the American Trucking Association (ATA) filed a brief with Court of Appeals asking for a Stay, in order to allow the FMCSA to issue a revised rule-making regarding the 11-hour driving and 34-hour reset provisions in such a manner that the new rule-making would avoid the procedural issues cited by the Court in their decision to overturn those provisions.

On September 21, 2007 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) filed a brief strongly supporting the ATA’s position, and requested a 12-month stay of implementation

These two filings will delay any immediate changes to the regulations being implemented by the Court. The Court will also issue a ruling at some time in the future that will indicate if they will issue a long-term stay, and the length of that Stay.

For now, RapidLog customers can continue using the existing software, and their drivers can continue to run under the existing regulations, including 11-hour driving and 34-hour reset provisions.
