Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of the Committee is to advise the FHWA on how to best achieve the merger of the current medical qualifications determination into the existing States' commercial driver's license (CDL) licensing process. The Committee is comprised of persons representing the interests that would be impacted by an FHWA rulemaking regarding this subject matter. During the past 2 years the Committee convened 7 meetings to deliberate the merger of the two processes. As a result of the meetings the participants reached a consensus and have submitted to FHWA a draft rule pertaining to the driver medical qualifications and licensing processes.
How is membership balanced?*All interests that would be significantly or directly affected by a revised commercial driver physical qualifications standard have been represented in the negotiations, including representatives of State licensing agencies, State enforcement organizations, motor carriers, commercial motor vehicle drivers, medical providers and standards organizations, insurance interests, representatives of the driving public and public interest organizations. Each participant was chosen to provide a balanced cross section of viewpoints concerning the merger of FHWA's driver licensing and medical qualifications requirements.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee conducted 7 meetings during its 2-year tenure. These meetings represent the amount of time needed by the participants to express their varied viewpoints, address the significant issues, reach a consensus and prepare a draft rule for submission to the FHWA.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Committee was established because there was no single forum already in existence that could provide the specific inputs that were sought by the FHWA relative to the subject matter at-hand.
Why close or partially close meetings?All the meetings were open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe Commercial Driver Physical Qualifications Negotiated Rulemaking Advisory Committee conducted its final meeting in November 1997 and its charter expired on July 12, 1998. The Committee submitted to the FHWA's Office of Motor Carriers a draft
rule related to commercial driver physical qualifications as part of the commercial driver licensing process. There are no plans to renew the charter for this Committee.
