Alabama Metal Coil Securement Act; Petition for Determination of Preemption
Document Number: 2013-05114
Type: Notice

Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA grants a petition submitted by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) requesting a determination that the State of Alabama's Metal Coil Securement Act (the Act) is preempted by Federal law.

Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
On September 12, 2011, FMCSA announced and requested public comment on data and information concerning the Pre-Authorization Safety Audit (PASA) for Grupo Behr de Baja California SA de CV (Grupo Behr), USDOT 861744, a motor carrier that applied to participate in the Agency's long-haul pilot program. That action was required by the ``U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007'' and all subsequent appropriations. While Grupo Behr successfully completed the PASA process, commenters raised concerns about the company's safety record. In addition, during the Agency's safety vetting process, an operating authority violation was discovered. As a result, the Agency placed Grupo Behr's application on hold. The purpose of this notice is to respond to the comments received in response to the September 12, 2011, notice, and to explain the enforcement action that the Agency took as a result of the operating authority violation. In addition, this notice advises that the Agency will now issue provisional authority to Grupo Behr for participation in the long-haul pilot program.
