II. Correction

    On September 8, 2020 (85 FR 55572), FMCSA published a notice 
announcing Daimler's request for an exemption from the CDL requirements 
for nine of its CMV drivers. The notice sought public comment, but did 
not include a closing date for the public comment period. Through this 
notice, FMCSA provides a deadline for the comment period.
