SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On November 5, 2013 (78 FR 66420), FMCSA published a notice in the 
Federal Register requesting comments on proposed enhancements to the 
display of information on the Agency's SMS public Web site. FMCSA first 
announced the implementation of the SMS in April 2010 and announced 
further improvements to the SMS in March 2012 and August 2012. 
Consistent with its prior announcements, the Agency announced proposed 
changes to the design of the SMS public Web site that are the direct 
result of feedback from stakeholders regarding the information 
displayed. The Agency provided a 60-day comment period for the notice 
with a deadline of January 6, 2014, for the submission of comments.
    On December 6, 2013, Advocates requested a 60-day extension of the 
comment period for the November 5, notice. Advocates stated that 
``review of the topic requires considerable experience with the use of 
the Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) Web site and the SMS 
data in order to evaluate the display of information, assess the 
changes and formulate a clear understanding the changes may have on 
public access and comprehension of the [Web site] information.''
    The FMCSA has determined that a 15-day extension of the comment 
period is appropriate while a longer extension, as requested by 
Advocates, is unnecessary given the original 60-day comment period and 
the three educational webinars the Agency conducted on November 18, 21, 
and 22. The series of webinars were announced in the November 5, 2013, 
notice.
    In consideration of the above, FMCSA extends the deadline for 
submission of public comments from January 6 to January 21, 2014.

    Issued on: December 11, 2013.
