2017-43 October 3, 2017 DOT Issues Notice of Regulatory Review

By JHMT StaffOctober 3, 2017

Yesterday, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a notice in the Federal Register titled Notification of Regulatory Review.

According to the notice, DOT is reviewing its existing regulations and other agency actions to evaluate their continued necessity, determine whether they are crafted effectively to solve current problems, and evaluate whether they potentially burden the development or use of domestically produced energy resources.

The public is invited to provide input on existing rules and other agency actions that are good candidates for repeal, replacement, suspension, or modification.

The Journal will be closely monitoring this process and developments in this area.
