ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) announcement on the availability of a Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) on the potential environmental impact of its implementation of the U.S.-Mexico cross-border long-haul trucking pilot program. FMCSA has cited the insignificance of the potential environmental impacts of the pilot program. The pilot program allows Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate in the U.S. for up to 3 years.
