Title: +Broker and Freight Forwarder Financial Responsibility 

FMCSA plans to initiate a rulemaking action pertaining to section 32918 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). MAP-21 raised the financial security amount for brokers from $10,000 to $75,000 and, for the first time, established financial security requirements for freight forwarders. In the ANPRM, the Agency will consider eight separate areas: 1) group surety bonds/trust funds, 2) assets readily available, 3) immediate suspension of broker/freight forwarder operating authority, 4) surety or trust responsibilities in cases of broker/freight forwarder financial failure or insolvency, 5) enforcement authority, 6) entities eligible to provide trust funds for form BMC-85 filings, 7) Form BMC-84 and BMC-85 trust fund revisions, and 8) household goods (HHG).
