49 CFR Part 1312

[Ex Parte No. MC-180 (Sub-No. 2)]


Rulemaking--Payment of Discounts by Motor Carriers of Property to 
the Nonpayer of Freight Charges

AGENCY: Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC).

ACTION: Proposed Rule; Discontinue proceeding.


SUMMARY: By a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) served June 4, 1993, 
and published at 58 FR 32340, June 9, 1993, the Commission instituted 
this proceeding to determine whether off-bill discounting where it does 
or may result in a misrepresentation of shipping charges should be 
found to be an unreasonable practice or otherwise unlawful. However, 
the ``Negotiated Rates Act of 1993'' (Pub. L. 103-180), since has been 
enacted and amends subchapter IV of chapter 107 of title 49, United 
States Code, by adding section 10767. Section 10767 requires that the 
Commission establish regulations to prohibit, except for certain 
services, motor common and contract carriers of property from providing 
a reduction in a tariff rate or contract rate to a person who is a 
nonpayer of freight charges. The Commission must issue these 
regulations by April 2, 1994. Because section 10767 supersedes the NPR, 
the Commission is discontinuing this proceeding.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission's rules implementing section 
10767 are published in Ex Parte No. MC-180 (Sub-No. 3), Regulations 
Implementing Section 7 of the ``Negotiated Rates Act of 1993''. To

human environment or the conservation of energy resources.

    Decided: December 30, 1993.

Commissioners Phillips and Philbin.
