12/17/2012- On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed into law a new two year transportation reauthorization bill, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act ("MAP-21"; P.L. 112-141).
                         
This new law includes many  important provisions intended to help the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in its important mission to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving
large trucks and buses. Many of the provisions in MAP-21 track the Agency's strategic framework to improve commercial motor vehicle safety by supporting its three core principles:
1.Raise the bar to enter the industry and operate on our roads;
2. Hold motor carrier and drivers to the highest safety standards to continue operations; and
3.Remove the highest risk drivers, vehicles, and carriers from our roads and prevent them from operating.

MAP-21 takes effect October 1, 2012. The new law provides $561 million in fiscal year (FY) 2013 and $572 million in FY 2014 for the Agency's administrative expenses and grant programs.
The Agency is beginning to reach out to stakeholders as it continues to implement this law and invites your feedback. Please email your comments to fmcsamap21@dot.gov.
