Washington, D.C. — Leaders of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) are planning to attend the industry’s largest trade show.

In an announcement, the FMCSA informed that leaders will be hosting an “update” while at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), set to take place next week in Louisville, KY.


The meeting — which is scheduled for Friday, March 25 at 10 a.m. in the ProTalks Theater (Room B104) at the Kentucky Expo Center — is open to attendees.

Topics that will be discussed include the new entry-level driving training rule, human trafficking, drug and alcohol regulations and Crash Preventability Determination Program.

Immediately following, FMCSA will hold a joint session with the Department of Labor (DOL) to discuss ways to attract more drivers into the industry, as well as other initiatives such as the potential of DOL Registered Apprenticeship programs in the trucking industry.

Additionally, Acting Administrator Robin Hutcheson is hosting a roundtable with media members on Thursday, March 24, in which she is expected to discuss the new $1.2 trillion infrastructure law, the Biden-Harris Trucking Action Plan and the ongoing supply chain woes.
