COMMENT PERIOD EXTENDED BY 1 MONTH FOR POTENTIAL FMCSA, FRA SLEEP APNEA RULE

Interested parties will have one extra month — until July 8 — to submit comments on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) and the Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) potential sleep apnea rule.

The agencies say the extension will allow time for review of American Transportation Research Institute’s (ATRI) sleep apnea survey released last month.

The agencies list 20 questions interested parties should answer in their public comments. The agencies have also held three public listening sessions. Interested parties can comment here.
