NOTE: Regarding “Lease & Interchange of Vehicles; Motor Carriers or Passengers,” Docket FMCSA-2012-0103. Forty-three Petitions for Reconsideration were received in response to this final rule (May 27, 2015; 80 FR 30164). All requests were addressed in one or more of a series of Federal Register notices; therefore they are considered “closed.” In addition to notices extending the period for filing petitions for reconsideration, an August 31, 2016 (81 FR 59951) Federal Register notice announced the Agency’s intent to issue a rulemaking concerning revisions to the May 27, 2015, final rule, and outlined the areas to be addressed in the future rulemaking.
