FMCSA Preempts California Meal and Rest Break Rules
On December 21, 2018, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced it is granting petitions to preempt the State of California’s meal and rest break rules, which differ from current Federal hours-of-service regulations.
