Get Ready: HOS Changes Will Go Through As Planned

The FMCSA is sticking to its guns; the HOS changes will go into effect on July 1st despite the widespread outcry against it. The ATA has been the driving force behind the opposition, with an ongoing court case between the FMCSA and the ATA as the proverbial battleground for the issue.

In an attempt to push off the HOS changes so that a court would have enough time to (hopefully) rule in their favor, the ATA sent a letter asking for the compliance date to be pushed back to three months after the court ruling. The goal, according to Bill Graves, president of the ATA, is to prevent any unnecessary training which will be rendered useless when the ruling is overturned.
