WASHINGTON (Feb. 15)—The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection has scheduled an oversight hearing Feb. 28 on the implementation of the Transportation Recall Efficiency, Accountability and Documentation Act. A major topic at the hearing will be the TREAD Act-mandated rule requiring onboard tire pressure monitoring systems on vehicles, which was due out in November. The Office of Management and Budget wrote the Department of Transportation Feb. 12, essentially saying it wouldn't sign off on the regulation unless the DOT reconsidered the benefits of an indirect tire monitoring system tied to anti-lock braking systems.
