Title: ●Rulemaking Procedures Update 

This rulemaking would amend FMCSA’s rulemaking procedures by revising the process for preparing and adopting rules, petitions, and direct final rules. Also, the Agency adds new definitions, and makes general administrative corrections throughout its rulemaking procedures.  These proposed actions are authorized under the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act and the Administrative Procedure Act and are expected to streamline the rulemaking process at FMCSA and simplify the public’s interaction with the agency.
