Dear Ms. Bodner:

You have asked us to comment on your company's proposal to establish a single, comprehensive anti-drug plan to cover pipeline workers under our drug testing rules (Part 199) and truck drivers under the drug testing rules of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

The Department's General Counsel has advised us that a company may use a single plan to cover both pipeline workers and truck drivers. Because the rules governing drug testing of pipeline workers and truck drivers are intended to be substantially the same, the plan may be designed to meet either Part 199 or the FHWA rules, at the company's option.

If you would like further information on this subject, please call Cesar De Leon, (202) 366-1640.


George W. Tenley, Jr

Acting Director

Office of Pipeline Safety
