II. Background On August 22, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for 121 individuals from the insulin-treated diabetes mellitus prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 FR 39943). The public comment period ended on September 21, 2017 and two 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)(3). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding diabetes found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of diabetes mellitus currently requiring insulin for control. III. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received two comments in this preceding. Perdro Fravien asked if these drivers were type 1 or type 2 diabetics. He stated that the drivers should be type 1 because if they don’t have immediate access to medication it may cause an accident. Amber Brooks commented that FMCSA ‘‘wants to disallow the issuance of drivers licenses to commercial vehicles’’. She referred to several studies on diabetes. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of the 121 applicants and determined that granting the exemptions to these individuals 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)(3). IV. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the 121 renewal exemption applications and comments received, FMCSA confirms its’ decision to exempt the following drivers from the rule prohibiting drivers with ITDM from driving CMVs in interstate commerce in 49 CFR 391.64(3): As of September 2, 2017, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, the following three individuals have satisfied the renewal conditions for obtaining an exemption from the rule prohibiting drivers with ITDM from PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58677 driving CMVs in interstate commerce (70 FR 23898; 70 FR 52465): Lee R.

II. Background

    On August 22, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its 
decision to renew exemptions for 121 individuals from the insulin-
treated diabetes mellitus prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) to operate 
a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 
FR 39943). The public comment period ended on September 21, 2017 and 
two 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)(3).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding diabetes 
found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3) states that a person is physically 
qualified to drive a CMV if that person has no established medical 
history or clinical diagnosis of diabetes mellitus currently requiring 
insulin for control.

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received two comments in this preceding. Perdro Fravien asked 
if these drivers were type 1 or type 2 diabetics. He stated that the 
drivers should be type 1 because if they don't have immediate access to 
medication it may cause an accident. Amber Brooks commented that FMCSA 
``wants to disallow the issuance of drivers licenses to commercial 
vehicles''. She referred to several studies on diabetes. FMCSA has 
evaluated the eligibility of the 121 applicants and determined that 
granting the exemptions to these individuals 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)(3).

IV. Conclusion

    Based upon its evaluation of the 121 renewal exemption applications 
and comments received, FMCSA confirms its' decision to exempt the 
following drivers from the rule prohibiting drivers with ITDM from
