SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 15, 2020, (85 FR 21061), FMCSA published a notice regarding five individuals requesting an exemption from the physical qualification standard found in § 391.41(b)(4), which states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person has no current clinical diagnosis of myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, coronary insufficiency, thrombosis, or any other cardiovascular disease of a variety known to be accompanied by syncope, dyspnea, collapse, or congestive cardiac failure. The notice referenced, in error, Minnesota as the State of domicile for the applicant, Theodore J. Engelke. Mr. Engelke's correct State of domicile is Wisconsin.
