DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AC41 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Hours of Service Recordkeeping; Electronic Recordkeeping Amendments (RRR) 

This rulemaking would propose to provide simplified recordkeeping requirements to allow railroads with less than 400,000 employee hours per year to utilize automated recordkeeping systems that are less complex than the electronic recordkeeping systems provided for in existing regulations. The rule would not require the use of electronic or automated recordkeeping, would be better tailored to small operations, and is expected to decrease the burden hours spent on recordkeeping.
