Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice; extension of public comment period.

SUMMARY:

The FMCSA announces an extension of the comment period for its June 8 notice concerning a project to demonstrate the ability of Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate safely in the United States beyond the commercial zones. On May 1, 2007, FMCSA published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the demonstration project as part of the Agency's implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) cross-border trucking provisions. On June 8, 2007, FMCSA published a second notice adding certain details concerning the demonstration project. The FMCSA extends the comment period on the June 8 notice in order to give the public more time to review supplemental information the Agency added to the docket; and because of technical problems associated with the relocation of the computers that host the electronic docket, which interfered with access to the Docket Management System (DMS).

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before July 9, 2007.
