Background [Docket No. FMCSA–2006–26367] SUMMARY: 35375 Purpose of the Committee MCSAC was established to provide FMCSA with advice and recommendations on motor carrier safety programs and motor carrier safety regulations. MCSAC is composed of up to 25 voting representatives from safety advocacy, safety enforcement, labor, and industry stakeholders of motor carrier safety. The diversity of the Committee ensures the requisite range of views and expertise necessary to discharge its responsibilities. The committee operates as a discretionary committee under the authority of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), established in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended 5 U.S.C. App. 2. Meeting Agenda On Tuesday, the MCSAC will begin considering Task 21–1, relating to supply chains for the transportation industrial base. Task 21–1 will include discussions about workforce skills for the motor carrier sector and identified gaps, opportunities, and potential best practices in meeting the future workforce needs and driver retention for the motor carrier industry, as well as the role of transportation systems in supporting existing supply chains and risks associated with those transportation systems and the safe and efficient transportation of passengers and freight across our Nation. Following its initial consideration of data and presentations on the topic, the MCSAC E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1 35376 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 125 / Friday, July 2, 2021 / Notices lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 will engage its Driver Subcommittee for its consideration of workforce needs, at a meeting later this summer. Additionally, MCSAC will resume consideration of the following issues: • Task 20–2 will focus on the impact of the aging demographic of the commercial motor vehicle driver workforce on the truck and bus industries and whether this trend will exacerbate the driver shortage problem. Stakeholders have expressed concerns about the need to address the driver shortage, including options for allowing younger drivers to enter the industry. How would an aging workforce impact motor carriers’ ability to deliver services and goods safely in interstate commerce? For this task, FMCSA will consider data by agency experts on the distribution of age among CMV drivers. • Task 20–1 will provide the MCSAC with the opportunity to discuss changes to the package and small goods delivery sector. A number of companies are now using small vehicles (e.g., vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating less than 10,000 pounds, etc.) to deliver goods and there appears to be a gap in safety oversight of both drivers and vehicles. For this task, members will hear from Agency experts on trends in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) crash and highway safety data.
