July 12, 2016: Notice Dismissing Application and Closing the Docket

In April 2014 ATA applied for an administrative determination on whether Federal hazmat transportation law preempts Pittsburg’s requirements for permits authorizing transportation of hazardous materials by motor vehicle. PHMSA published a comment period and conducted additional fact-finding analysis.
The City of Pittsburgh’s permit and permit fee requirement are not being applied for enforcement so the application for determination of preemption has been dismissed.

Docket No. PHMSA–2014–0002; PDA– 36(R)
