The Tobacco Control Act provides FDA authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, smokeless tobacco, and any other tobacco products that the Agency by regulation deems to be subject to the law. With this final rule, FDA is extending the Agency's ``tobacco product'' authorities in the FD&C Act to all other categories of products that meet the statutory definition of ``tobacco product'' in the FD&C Act, except accessories of such newly deemed tobacco products. This final rule also prohibits the sale of ``covered tobacco products'' to individuals under the age of 18 and requires the display of health warnings on cigarette tobacco, roll-your own tobacco, and covered tobacco product packages and in advertisements.

The Agency would register such carriers as regular-route carriers without requiring designation of specific regular routes and fixed end-points. Once these regular-route motor carriers have obtained operating authority from FMCSA, they would no longer need to seek additional FMCSA approval in order to change or add routes. By eliminating the need to file and process multiple requests concerning routes, the Agency believes this action will decrease the paperwork burden on regular-route motor carriers seeking to expand or change their routes without compromising safety. It will also decrease the Agency's own paperwork burden. Each registered regular-route motor carrier of passengers would continue to be subject to the full safety oversight and enforcement program of FMCSA and its State and local partners.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2008/08/07/E8-18173/elimination-of-route-designation-requirement-for-motor-carriers-transporting-passengers-over-regularFR-Doc-E8-18173
