SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 2, 2017 the U.S. Department of Transportation (the Department or DOT) issued a Notification of Regulatory Review seeking comment from the public on existing rules and other agency actions that are good candidates for repeal, replacement, suspension, or modification. DOT provided a 30 day comment period for responses to that document. We have received requests for extension of the comment period, including one from the American Bus Association requesting a 90 day extension from the date of issuance of the document. The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association requested a 30 day extension from the initial close of the comment period and the Countryside Tank Company, NJP Engineering LLC, and Container Technology Incorporated requested an extension of 90 days from the initial close of the comment period.

In response, the Department is reopening the comment period for its Notification of Regulatory Review for 30 days. The comment period ends November 1, 2017.
