The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) on Nov. 24 granted another extension to the hours of service (HOS) waiver for drivers of commercial vehicles transporting water and livestock feed in North Dakota.

The waiver is intended to assist the state’s livestock producers affected by continuing drought conditions.

Originally issued on Sept. 22, the extended waiver will remain in effect through Dec. 24 or until the end of the emergency, whichever is earlier.
