DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AB58 Publication ID: 2012 
Title:+Transportation of Agricultural Commodities 
Abstract: FMCSA amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations in response to the two agriculture-related provisions in MAP-21. The two provisions concerning the transportation of agriculture-related items by commercial motor vehicles (CMVs): section 32934 ?Exemptions from Requirements for Covered Farm Vehicles? and section 32101(d), ?Transportation of Agricultural Commodities and Farm Supplies.? Section 32101(d) of MAP-21 amends section 229(a)(1) of the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 [49 U.S.C. 31136 (note)] which provides a statutory exception to the hours-of-service (HOS) rules for drivers of CMVs engaged in the transportation of agricultural commodities and farm supplies. Section 32934 of MAP-21 provides a statutory exception to most of the FMCSRs, including those pertaining to commercial driver?s licenses and driver qualification requirements, for the operation of covered farm vehicles by farm and ranch operators, their employees, and certain other specified individuals under specific circumstances.
