OOIDA has joined a coalition of transportation organizations calling on Congress to require FMCSA to complete all reforms related to the Compliance, Safety and Accountability/Safety Measurement System (CSA/SMS) prior to moving forward with the Safety Fitness Determination (SFD) rulemaking. The new SFD methodology utilizes potentially flawed CSA/SMS data and scores, which Congress instructed the FMCSA to overhaul just last year in the FAST Act. OOIDA and its industry partners believe FMCSA should finish these mandated improvements to CSA/SMS before enforcing a new evaluation system for carriers. The coalition recently sent a letter to leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees requesting they prevent FMCSA from advancing the SFD rule until the required reforms have been completed.

At the urging of the coalition, 33 Members of Congress sent their own letter to the leaders of the House of Representatives Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee.
