HOS restart rule reverts to pre-July 2013 status
President Obama signed the $1.1 trillion spending bill at 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 16. The suspension of the hours-of-service restart provision has taken effect. The restart rule reverts to the simple 34-hour restart. This will be in effect until Sept. 30, 2015. You still must comply with all other HOS rules, including the 30-minute rest break provision.
