The White House Office of Management and Budget has cleared a proposal to prohibit coercion of drivers by carriers, shippers or receivers.

OMB sent the proposed rule back to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, typically a signal that a Federal Register notice is pending.

The proposal is a companion to the electronic logging mandate that is now pending at the agency.

The two proposals are related by a 2011 court order that told the agency it has to make sure that carriers cannot use electronic logging to coerce drivers. In addition, the current highway law, MAP-21 extends the coercion ban to shippers, receivers and transportation intermediaries.
