We see that you have recently blogged about EOBRs and their impact on CMV drivers. Now that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has proposed to require EOBRs for all long haulers and many short haulers, we hope you’ll ask your readers to tell FMSCA what they should do to get this rule right. There’s an easy way to learn about the proposal and lend your expertise to the rulemaking process at http://regulationroom.org/
Regulation Room is an online public participation website where individuals and groups can learn about and discuss proposed new federal regulations. Most important, unlike other blogs and discussion forums, Regulation Room discussion actually gets read by agency decision-makers because we submit a detailed summary of all the comments directly to FMCSA. The Department of Transportation’s open government flagship initiative, Regulation Room is designed and operated by the Cornell e-Rulemaking Initiative (CeRI).
The EOBR rule will affect truckers more directly than anyone else, and Regulation Room offers an innovative way for them to have their voices heard effectively by FMCSA. We hope you will consider spreading the word to your audience about Regulation Room and the unique opportunity it offers them to get their on-the-job expertise into the final rule. The more input we receive, the better the chance that the final regulation will reflect the concerns of all stakeholders.
