CVSA Legislative/Regulatory Update

CVSA Legislative/Regulatory Update

 

Attached is the most recent policy guidance memorandum issued by FMCSA on April 4, 2006 covering all of the hours-of-service exemptions in SAFETEA-LU and superseding the previous preliminary policy guidance memorandum on these exemptions issued on September 6, 2005.

A significant change from the September 6 memorandum is on page 5 in the last paragraph under item 3, SAFETEA-LU Section 4132-Hours of Service for Operators of Utility Service Vehicles, in which FMCSA has determined that intrastate utility service drives are exempt in addition to interstate utility service drivers.
