Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.


Notice of change in hearing structure.


By notice of May 5, 2000 (65 FR 26166), the FMCSA announced the scheduling of a public hearing on May 31 and June 1, 2000, for persons to present comments on the agency's proposed revisions to its hours-of-service regulations (65 FR 25540, May 2, 2000). The announcement said the hearing would be subdivided and the FMCSA would seek comments on specific topics during prescribed time periods.

Because many persons have asked to speak on the general subject, rather than specific areas, it has been determined that all speakers may speak on the general subject of the proposed revisions at any time they are scheduled to testify during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.


The hearing will be held on May 31 and June 1, 2000.

The hearing will be at the DOT Headquarters building, Room 2230, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590-0001.
