Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA corrects its May 7, 2020, notice requesting comments on the receipt of applications from eight individuals for exemption from the requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) that interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers have ``no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to control a CMV'' to include one individual whose name was not listed in that notice. The exemptions enable these individuals who have had one or more seizures and are taking anti- seizure medication to continue to operate CMVs in interstate commerce. The Agency also reopens the public comment period for that notice.
