Congress Seeks to Block Sleep Apnea Rule

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Following the lead of the House, which unanimously passed H.R. 3095 in late September, the Senate passed H.R. 3095 by unanimous consent on October 4th. H.R. 3095 now goes the President for his signature. The intent of H.R. 3095 is to block the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) from adopting and/or enforcing regulations on sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, for commercial motor vehicle drivers absent a formal rulemaking process. The American Trucking Associations estimates that such a rule could cost the trucking industry roughly $1 billion.

NRMCA will continue to monitor this issue for any future developments.
