Deputy Secretary dispels rumor of CDL requirement for farm equipment

We’ve heard a number of questions and rumors about the federal government planning to require that operators of farm equipment obtain a CDL (Commercial Driver’s License).  Brownfield has just reported on a statement issued at the Ohio State Fair today by a U.S. Department of Transportation official.  According to the news source, US DOT Deputy Secretary John Porcari clarified that the federal agency is not considering any such requirement for farm equipment operators. 

“Let me say this as bluntly as I can to the agricultural community, there is no new regulation coming down the pike requiring commercial driver’s licenses for operators of farm equipment,” said Porcari.
