ABSTRACT: To comply with the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, FRA is adjusting the minimum and maximum civil monetary penalties (CMP) that it will apply when assessing a penalty for a violation of the Federal hazardous material transportation laws and regulations. Consistent with past FRA practice, FRA�s penalty increase will mirror that made by DOT�s lead agency for administration of the hazardous materials transportation laws and regulations, the Research and Special Program Administration (RSPA). In particular, FRA is increasing the minimum civil penalty from $250 to $275 and the maximum civil penalty from $27,500 to $32,500.
