FMCSA Grants Petition for Reconsideration

The FMCSA grants a petition for reconsideration submitted by the New York City Department of Finance (DOF) requesting reconsideration of the Agency’s previous determination that the credential display requirement of New York City’s Commercial Motor Vehicle Tax (CMV Tax) is preempted.  Federal law prohibits States and their political  subdivisions from requiring motor carriers to display in or on commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) any form of identification other than forms required by the Secretary of Transportation, with certain exceptions.  FMCSA has determined that the CMV Tax qualifies for one of the statutory exceptions. 

This decision is effective March 6, 2012
