Landry-Rahall Amendment Bears No Impact on EOBR MandateJuly 5, 2012
There has been quite a bit of misinformation swirling around the EOBR mandate since it was passed by the U.S. Congress last Friday—especially with regard to the Landry-Rahall Amendment, which seeks to strip federal funding for the mandate.
Today, FleetOwner published a definitive piece on the amendment and notes, “Nothing in the Landry-Rahall amendment would prevent the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) from going ahead with its on-going EOBR rulemaking.”
To be clear, the EOBR mandate doesn’t need to be subsidized by the DOT funding measure, which Landry-Rahall seeks to amend. If you’re a motor carrier that’s required to file a record of duty status (RODS), you must log your hours of service using an electronic logging device within two years from the time the regulation is published.
For more information, we encourage you to read the FleetOwner article, Landry-Rahall amendment will not stop EOBR mandate.
