DOT/FTA RIN: 2132-AB42 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: State Safety Oversight 

This rulemaking will amend 49 CFR part 674 to introduce changes to clarify State safety oversight agencies (SSOA) oversight responsibilities, which will enhance the operation and efficiency of the FTA State Safety Oversight Program and reduce instances of noncompliance with part 674. Topics of proposed changes include accident notifications and investigations, corrective action plans, annual safety status reports, FTA annual report submissions, allegation of noncompliance, and State safety oversight communications. In addition, the proposed rulemaking will incorporate the new requirement for State safety oversight agency authority to conduct inspections, as established in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
