The MATS listening session will be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center, South Wing Room B101, 937 Phillips Lane, Louisville, Kentucky 40209-1331. It will begin at 10 am local time and end at 6 pm.
People may attend the trucking show and the listening session free of charge, if they pre-register online with the MATS organizer at http://truckingshow.com/attendee/attendee-registration. . Attendees pre-registering must print out their confirmation page after registering and present it at the Kentucky Exposition Center door to be admitted free. Otherwise, admission to the trucking show on March 26 will be $5.
The listening session will allow interested persons to present comments, views, and relevant research on revisions FMCSA should consider in its forthcoming rulemaking on driver hours of service. All comments will be transcribed and placed in the rulemaking docket for the FMCSA's consideration.
