I. Background


Section 4144 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU, Pub. L. 109-59, 119 Stat. 1144, August 10, 2005) required the Secretary of Transportation to establish the MCSAC. The MCSAC provides advice and recommendations to the FMCSA Administrator on motor carrier safety programs and regulations, and operates in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App 2).

Long-Haul Cross Border Trucking Pilot Program Task

In 2011, FMCSA directed the MCSAC to form a subcommittee consider Task 11-03, regarding Oversight of the Long-Haul Cross Border Trucking Pilot Program. Known as the Cross Border Subcommittee, FMCSA requested that the MCSAC serve as the monitoring Federal advisory committee for the Pilot Program. Specifically, FMCSA requested that MCSAC:

  • Assess the safety record of participating Mexico-domiciled motor carriers;Start Printed Page 38647
  • Continue to advise FMCSA concerning designated tasks related to the pilot program; and
  • Issue a final report addressing whether FMCSA conducted the Pilot Program in a manner consistent with the objectives outlined in its Federal Register Notice.

Procedurally, the subcommittee would present its recommendations to the full MCSAC for review and discussion with the final report submitted to the Agency. The subcommittee held its first meeting on March 31, 2011, and has held subsequent meetings since that time.
