Transport Topics and the Commercial Vehicle Training Association report that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will  miss an October deadline set by Congress to mandate electronic logging devices in all trucks. The reports stated that according to FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro, the agency will publish a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking for the mandate in September, and the mandate itself will likely be finalized a year later.

The requirement will probably be implemented in 2016.

After the new proposal is re­leased, the agency will allow the public to comment on it for at least 90 days.
