So it did pass.  Well add some more confusion to the mix.  Proper revision is needed.  More pot stirring with no real results is not.  Will be interesting to see what actually comes out of this.  The trucking industry needs to become more involved in this process and find a way to greater influence the outcome.  This includes drivers not just corporations.   Letting this all up to the delegates, auto groups and insurance industry is only going to hurt the trucking industry even more.

Let me share a posting from Jeffery Trainor at LinkedIn:

Breaking News: US Truck Driver Hours of Service Rules to be Re-Written 

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), in response to a legal challenge to the current hours of service (HOS) regulations, will completely rewrite the 2008 HOS regulations. The agency will issue a proposed rulemaking within 9 months and a new Final Rule in less than two years.
This settlement is in response to a legal challenge brought against FMCSA by Public Citizen, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, the Truck Safety Coalition and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. In March 2009, the groups asked a D.C. Appeals court to throw out the HOS rule. The March 2009 challenge was the third challenge to the Bush Administration’s HOS rules.
