|2021hisb01216i||2021||HI||SB||1216||Requires entry level driver training for certain applicants for a commercial driver's license.||On December 8, 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued a final rule that amends title 49 Code of Federal Regulations part 380, subpart F to require entry-level driver training for certain applicants for commercial driver's licenses or endorsements (Final Rule).
The Final Rule also requires states to be in substantial compliance with the Final Rule within three years from the date the Final Rule became effective, which was February 6, 2017. The date for compliance was extended to February 7, 2022, through an interim final rule. If a state fails to be in substantial compliance with the Final Rule, the federal government is authorized to withhold certain federal funding. In the first year a state fails to be in substantial compliance, four percent of certain federal funds are withheld; for Hawaii, this would be equivalent to $6,185,220. In subsequent years a state fails to be in substantial compliance, eight percent of certain federal funds are withheld; for Hawaii, this would be equivalent to $12,370,440. This measure will bring Hawaii into substantial compliance with the Final Rule.
