"The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is a part of DOT, wants to adopt standards that would reclassify all farm vehicles and implements as Commercial Motor Vehicles, officials said. Likewise, the proposal, if adopted, would require all farmers and everyone on the farm who operates any of the equipment to obtain a CDL, they added." Read the entire article here.
Leave it to federal regulators from Washington, DC to try to ram another stick through our spokes. To call this proposal "absurd" is putting it mildly. If you wish to register your opposition, contact your senators and contact your congressman.
