49 CFR Part 395

[Docket No. FMCSA-2004-19608]
RIN 2126-AB26


Hours of Service of Drivers: Correction

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: FMCSA corrects the hours of service (HOS) final rule published 
on December 27, 2011 (76 FR 81143). This correction notice corrects the 
amendatory language or guidance to legal editors of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) on the proper codification of the December 27, 2011 
rule. This notice does not change, in any manner, the regulatory text.

DATES: This final rule is effective February 27, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Thomas Yager, Chief, Driver and 
Carrier Operations Division, Federal Motor Carrier Safety 
Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey 
Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, (202) 366-4325.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The amendatory instruction for paragraph (b) 
Driving conditions in Sec.  395.1 Scope of the rules in this part 
incorrectly referenced revising paragraph (b)(1)'s introductory text. 
FMCSA intended to completely revise paragraph (b)(1). An unintended 
edit to the instruction made just before publication caused the 
instruction to be inaccurate. FMCSA intended for the current 
paragraph's subparagraphs (b)(1)(i) through (b)(1)(iv) to be removed 
entirely. See the discussion of the Agency's intentions in the section-
by-section analysis on 76 FR 81165 col. 3. This correction notice 
corrects the instruction for publishers of public and private editions 
of title 49 CFR chapter III, subchapter B--Federal Motor Carrier Safety 
Regulations (FMCSRs). Correcting the amendatory language provides 
guidance to legal editors of the FMCSRs on the proper codification of 
the December 27, 2011 rule. This notice does not change, in any manner, 
the regulatory text intended.
    In FR Doc. 2011-32696, appearing on page 81134 in the Federal 
Register of Tuesday, December 27, 2011, the following correction is 
made.


Sec.  395.1  [Corrected]

    On page 81186, in the third column, in Part 395--Hours of Service 
of Drivers, in amendment 8a, the instruction, ``8. Amend Sec.  395.1 as 
follows: a. Revise the paragraph (b) heading and paragraph (b)(1) 
introductory text;'' is corrected to read, ``8. Amend Sec.  395.1 as 
follows: a. Revise the paragraph (b) heading and revise paragraph 
(b)(1);''

    Issued on: February 7, 2012.
