What’s up with the 2010 UCR?

If you have tried to renew your Unified Carrier Registration for 2010 you proboably already know that you can’t. Strange as it may sound the Department of Transportation DOT is currently not accepting the 2010 UCR fees that were due in January.

This is already causing some states problems as they depend on these fees to help enforce DOT regulations. The Secretary of Transportation, Mr. LaHood, did not send the new proposed rule increasing the UCR fees to the Office of Management and Budget OMB until March. The OMB could take up to 90 days to review the rule. Some states have been forced to layoff safety enforcement personnel due to lack of funds.

Expect fees to double if the new proposal is approved by OMB. In 2009 we paid $3800, so that is quite a hit if fees double.
