Notice of proposed rulemaking.

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is proposing to amend its drug and alcohol testing rules to exempt volunteers and eliminate the citation requirement in the non-fatal, post-accident testing provision applicable to non-rail vehicles. We also seek comment on whether an ``accident'' should be defined to include the discharge of a firearm by a transit security officer. This rule, if adopted, is intended to increase the safety of mass transit and clarify certain provisions in the existing rules.
