Have also heard that UPS has a big time lobbying group that is pushing hard for the cargo cutout, and sadly, it's working. It seems like safety might be for sale.

To our MEC's knowledge, FDX does not have a lobbying campaign for the cargo cutout.

However, although I am always for safer rest rules, I have wondered if this NPRM might have unintended consequences for us at FDX and UPS, specifically, and maybe other cargo outfits too.

My concern is a possible negative effect on week on/week off schedules and on the commuters' lifestyle, to name two. Your thoughts?
