2017-46 October 31, 2017 Notification of Regulatory Review: Extension of Comment Period

By JHMT StaffOctober 31, 2017

On October 27, 2017, the US Department of Transportation posted DOT-OST-2017-0069-1202 advising that it is extending the comment period for its Notification of Regulatory Review by 30 days. The comment period was originally scheduled to end November 1, 2017. It will now end December 1, 2017. Responses should be filed by December 1, 2017. According to the notice, the DOT will continue to check the docket for late filed responses after the comment period closes. When filing comments, the agency name and docket number DOT-OST-2017-0069 must be included at the beginning of submissions.

Specific instructions for filing may be found by going to http://www.regulations.gov. There are presently over 1,100 filed comments. You may review them by clicking here. However, at this particular point, it appears that the comments cannot be filtered by specific agency, e.g. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), etc.

In future editions, The Journal will be reviewing and reporting on substantive recommendations made by submission. We will update readers on corresponding actions that may be taken by PHMSA or by other modal organizations.
