Trucking Industry Update: Shareholder Kathleen McDonough and Associate Dan Alexander Address New Hours of Service Rule
On July 1, 2013, all truck drivers and trucking companies must be in compliance with the new Hours of Service (HOS) rule, 49 C.F.R. Part 395. The latest compliance date represents over a decade of rulemaking, litigation, and negotiation concerning the maximum amount of hours that long-haul truck drivers can work and drive. In "Final Hours of Service Rule Ends a Decade of Controversy," published in the Trucking Industry Defense Association's (TIDA) winter 2012 newsletter, Shareholder Kathleen McDonough and Associate Dan Alexander discuss the history of the HOS rule and the impact that the 2013 rule will have on the trucking industry.
