The sessions will be held in the Washington, DC, Dallas and Los Angeles areas. The listening sessions will allow interested persons to present comments, views and relevant research on revisions FMCSA should consider in its forthcoming rulemaking. All comments will be transcribed and placed in the rulemaking docket for the FMCSA's consideration.
