In a tersely worded statement, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) said it is delaying yet again new hours of service (HOS) rules by a month to Nov. 28 – the second time this year the agency has delayed the imposition of its proposed HOS overhaul.

FMCSA said in its statement that it “will continue to work toward publishing a final rule as quickly as possible. The parties to the settlement agreement will file their next status report with the Court on November 28, 2011.”

The agency originally pushed back the publication date of its new HOS rules package from July to October 28 this year in part to deal with growing opposition to its proposed reforms.
