DG Digest: FMCSA to hold listening session on HOS, PHMSA announces new special permits

The Labor Day week is over, and the last of the summer holidays has passed.  Along with the return to school for children, this time of the year often portends a busier regulatory schedule as regulators, like everyone else, get back to being busy.  We’ll see how this fall goes, but meanwhile, here’s the last week’s news:
