ELD Proposal Rule to Be Published April 9
In its monthly report, the Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that it will publish its proposed rule on mandatory Electronic Loggic Devices (ELD) on April 9th.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) submitted the rule in August with the intention that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will review it by mid-November, but the date has been postponed several times since then.
If the rule is adopted, it will “all drivers now subject to keeping records of duty status to use a logging device”. For 60 days after the publication day (i.e. until June 9th), the rule will be open to public comment before it becomes final.
A publication date (23rd April) has been set for DOT’s driver coercion rule, too. The comment period will end June 25th.
