CVSA Wants 30 More Days
The CVSA has requested a 30 day extension for the E-Log Mandate, claiming that the 60 day commenting period is to short. The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has asked the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to give stakeholders an extra month to comment on the proposed electronic logging device.
CVSA Executive Director Stephen Keppler has officially asked FMCSA to move back the May 27th deadline 30 days, which would be June 26th. “This is a complex and significant rulemaking, for both the state enforcement agencies and the commercial motor vehicle industry,” the letter states, and all parties involved need time to vet and evaluate the rule and give feedback, Keppler wrote.
The 60 day public comment period that began on March 28th will end on the 27th of this month. However, the CVSA is pushing hard to get the date pushed back. In the letter, CVSA expressed the fact that more time is needed. Data from 90 days of comments will be more sufficient then only 60 days. As of now, FMCSA has yet to respond.
