The DOT, in an effort at transparency, publishes an ongoing projection of the target dates for proposed rulemaking. This publication is the “Report on DOT Significant Rulemaking”. You can find it at http://www.dot.gov/regulations/report-on-significant-rulemakings.
While all know and appreciate that “targets” are frequently moving and can result in rescheduling, I thought it would be of interest to show you what is in the pipeline and the latest “target” (did I say that they move?) for when the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is intended to be published.
The targets from the December Report are as follows:
-Carrier Safety Fitness Determination Methodology—Proposed Rule-6/27/25
-Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse—Final Rule-10/30/15
-Electronic Logging Devices—Final Rule-9/30/15
-Unified Registration Update—Proposed Rule-4/19/16
-Heavy Truck Speed Limiters-Proposed Rules-4/16/15
-Financial Responsibility-End of Comment Period-2/26/15
Again, these are the latest targets for the publications of the proposed or, in some cases, final regulations. Stay tuned for updates.
