DG Digest: U.S. DOT and PHMSA each outline revised guidance on regulatory roles

U.S. DOT issued new guidance documents that reflect the agency’s latest thinking in terms of how it interprets and enforces its various rulemaking authorities.  An FRA governed freight train rolls through Kent, Washington on March 4th, 2020.

The second week in March finds the nation continuing to cope with the growing COVID-19 viral outbreak.  Help your employees stay safe by emphasizing the basics: hand washing, covering one’s mouth for sneezes and coughs, stay home if ill, and don’t panic.  We can do this!  In other news, on Sunday we all “sprang forward.”  Did you remember?  Reset those clocks!

It was a pretty quiet week in the regulatory world.  Here’s the latest actions:


The agency announced the availability of revised guidance documents which help the public understand how DOT executes its regulatory roles.  See the announcement here.


PHMSA updated its own guidance portal to reflect the newly issued DOT general revisions (which see above).  See PHMSA’s specific guidance portal right here.
