Prevention of Alcohol Misuse and Prohibited Drug Use in Transit Operations
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) proposes to combine its drug and alcohol testing regulations. FTA believes this action will make the rules more ``user-friendly'' and easier to understand. Also, the new rule will take into account the guidance that FTA has issued in the past several years, including technical assistance, letters of interpretation, audit findings, newsletters, training classes, safety seminars, and public speaking engagements. In addition, this NPRM conforms FTA's rule to the Department of Transportation's (DOT) revised drug and alcohol testing rule published on December 19, 2000.
