ATA - American Trucking Associations ELD Update

ELD UPDATE – October 6, 2017 With the ELD rule moving toward implementation on December 18, we want to keep you up to date on the latest news and developments on Capitol Hill and within the Federal Agencies impacting this issue. Legislative:

On the legislative front, ATA has spearheaded efforts to push back against the efforts to delay implementation. During the House of Representatives consideration of the 8-bill appropriations package in early September, ATA – along with its state partners, coalition allies and Congressional champions – worked to secure the votes to defeat an ELD implementation delay amendment offered by Representative Brian Babin (R-TX). After the amendment was soundly defeated, ATA has pushed to educate Members of Congress and set the record straight, separating the facts from OOIDA’s fiction. Ultimately, the failed vote in the House is expected to stifle any momentum that had been gained in pursuit of a delay, particularly with respect to Rep. Babin’s standalone bill, H.R.3282, and other legislative report language requests. In the Senate, the message has been clear that there is no appetite to consider attempts to delay the December 18 implementation.

The Senate Appropriations Committee chose not to consider the issue, which has been affirmed by both Congress and the courts on many occasions, making clear their belief that implementation should and will move forward as planned. Nonetheless, over the coming two months, ATA will continue to work hand in glove with Congress to ensure the December 18 ELD implementation moves forward seamlessly, with the facts in hand, and without delay. Regulatory: On Monday, the Department of Transportation published in the federal register a request for public comment to on existing rules and agency actions that are good candidates for repeal, replacement, suspension, or modification. It is a routine activity typically conducted after a change in presidential administration to help the department prioritize its regulatory agenda for the coming years.

The Obama Administration issued a similar notice on February 28, 2011 which sought to “determine whether [regulations] are crafted effectively to solve current problems.” In fact, Monday’s notice used the exact same language. ATA has been anticipating this notice all year, and has convened several member committees and working groups to identify regulations that are great candidates for removal or adjustment. As some have noticed however, OOIDA is attempting to coopt this routine activity to draw attention to its opposition to ELDs. They’ve submitted a request for extension asking for an additional thirty days “given the number of regulatory rules and agency actions we believe should be addressed.” This request for extension has been followed by nearly 100 “comments,” most of which are, at best, unsubstantiated and, at worst, patently false, complaints about ELDs and Hours of Service more broadly. Simply put, OOIDA latched onto routine agency activity with their petition, trying to make it about ELDs, when it is not.

In addition to outlining our priorities for regulatory reform, ATA will be commenting in full support of an on-time implementation of the ELD rule. These comments will include a data driven defense of ELDs as well as a full recounting of the legislative, regulatory and judicial history of the ELD rulemaking. Many of you have indicated your intent to submit comments and we encourage all who are interested to show broad support for this common sense policy.

Comments can be submitted by using this link: and clicking on the “Comment Now!” Regardless of this exercise in the docket, we have been working with FMCSA, DOT, and the Administration to ensure they understand the history and support for the rule, the benefits of ELDs, and our partnership to help educate and coordinate education and implementation.
