June 2022 Significant Rulemaking Report
Mariah Barr
3 mins read

Although June was a relatively quiet month on the regulation front, there are still a few industry topics worth noting, including an upcoming safety event, a commentary period extension for a proposed rulemaking, and an optimistic federal announcement. 

Brake Safety Week is Coming Up 

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) annual brake system check is scheduled for August 21-27, 2022. As usual, enforcement officers will be on the lookout to ensure your fleet’s brakes (and other important safety measures beyond mechanical components) are in working order.  

Enforcement Season is Here – Are You Ready? 

Even though the event is still over a month away, now is the time to ensure both your trucks and drivers are ready for these inevitable roadside inspections. We’ve compiled what you should expect and how to prepare for them in our recent Brake Safety Week blog article. 

Comment Period Extended for Speed Limiting Devices Proposal  

If you have an opinion on the FMCSA’s advance notice of supplemental proposed rulemaking to mandate speed limiters on most commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), you still have time to make your case known. 

This notice was originally published on May 4th and added to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) original initiatives to propose the devices in 2016.

The proposed rulemaking states that all interstate CMVs with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 26,001 pounds would need to have an electric engine control unit. While a maximum speed was not indicated, previous proposals have included 60, 65, or 68 miles per hour as potential limits.   

The new deadline for submitting comments on the proposed rulemaking is July 18th.  

Over $463 Million in MCSAP Grants Awarded for CMV Safety Improvements

On June 2nd the FMCSA announced all 50 U.S. States, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands will receive federal funds from the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP).  

This comes in response to an uptick in fatal accidents involving large trucks – 13 percent, specifically, according to preliminary 2021 data from NHTSA. The grants will help implement the Department of Transportation (DOT) National Roadway Safety Strategy (NRSS) to address traffic fatalities and serious injuries.

Using support from the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the DOT is providing a 52 percent increase in funding compared to last year’s grants. The FMCSA has provided the estimated funding for each state and territory.
