On Tuesday, Oct. 15, President Obama signed into law H.R. 3095, which requires a formal rulemaking process to be followed for any new or revised requirement related to sleep apnea screening, testing or treatment of commercial motor vehicle operators. The AASM looks forward to the opportunity to provide all stakeholders involved in the formal regulatory process with expert, evidence-based input on the best practices in sleep medicine to ensure that sleep apnea regulations promote the health of motor vehicle operators and the safety of all drivers on our roadways.
