October 06, 2017: Petition for Waiver of Compliance

Central Montana Rail, Inc. is requesting an extension of an existing waiver of compliance that permits railroad employees to remain on duty up to 16 hours in a 24 hour period. CMR maintains it has seen no negative impacts to safety and only uses the longer on duty periods for special circumstances like inclement weather, traffic peaks, or employee illness.
Interested parties may submit comments on the waiver request until November 20, 2017.
