Background On March 27, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for 126 individuals from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 FR 15277).

requirement in one eye.

stated in the discussions below and will expire on the dates stated in

II. Background

    On March 27, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision 
to renew exemptions for 126 individuals from the vision requirement in 
49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and 
requested comments from the public (82 FR 15277). The public comment 
period ended on April 26, 2017, and no comments were received.
    As stated in the previous notice, FMCSA has evaluated the 
eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these 
exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater 
than the level that would be achieved by complying with the current 
regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision 
found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) states that a person is physically 
qualified to driver a CMV if that person:

    Has distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each 
eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected 
to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with corrective lenses, distant 
binocular acuity of a least 20/40 (Snellen) in both eyes with or 
without corrective lenses, field of vision of at least 70[deg] in 
the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability to recognize 
the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, green, and 
amber.

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received no comments in this preceding.

VI. Conclusion

    As of April 1, 2017, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 
31315, the following 49 individuals have satisfied the conditions for 
obtaining a renewed exemption from the vision requirements (65 FR
