This article presents several concerns related to proposed HazMat storage and handling regulations. The Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA) issued a delay of the Final Rule regarding Applicability of the Hazardous Materials Regulations to Loading Unloading and Storage, on May 28, 2004. RSPA has advised that this additional time is needed to consider respondent arguments. Shippers, motor carriers, railroads, associations, and concerned private citizens deluged RSPA with responses to this proposal.
