Dear Transportation Partners:
The California Department of Transportation submitted to the Office of Administrative Law proposed regulations that would increase the axle weight exemptions for fire apparatus, and allow a longer single-unit fire apparatus vehicle.  The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking will be published in the California Regulatory Notice Register on Friday, October 31, 2008.  That date will begin a 45-day comment period.
For more information, please see the attached cover letter and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.

(See attached file: Fire Apparatus Letter 10-30-08.pdf)(See attached file:

Please feel free to forward this notice to interested parties.

Thank you,
Casey Robb
