Title: ●Hazardous Materials: Modal Regulatory Reform Initiatives 
Abstract:

This rulemaking amends the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR parts 100-185) to adopt a number of actions that will ease regulatory burdens on modal transportation while continuing to protect our communities from the risks inherent to transporting hazardous materials. These modal-specific (e.g., rail, highway, and vessel) amendments include deregulatory actions identified by internal agency review and public comments on the Department of Transportation regulatory reform and infrastructure notices.
