Six more groups file for hours stay
Six more groups file for hours stay - eTruckerSix shipping and trucking entities have filed in support of the American Trucking Associations' request that the effect of a federal court decision be stayed pending the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s reconsideration of the 11-hour and 34-hour provisions.
ATA filed a motion Sept. 6 for a stay in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit after the FMCSA didn’t respond to the association’s request for an interim final rule readopting the 11-hour and 34-hour provisions. Without a stay request, the court’s decision could have become effective Sept. 7.
Simply filing a motion for a stay has the effect of a short-term stay because under normal procedures, the appeals court will consider responses to ATA’s motion during a 14-day period. A delay also gives FMCSA more time to consider whether it wants to adopt an interim final rule.
