USDA Grain Transportation Report (2/23): FMCSA Extends Multi-Regional Waiver For Transporting Fuel

According to today's USDA Grain Transportation Report, on February 14, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extended a multi-regional emergency declaration that waived hours of-service (HOS) regulations for drivers transporting fuel.

The declaration extension applies to several States that are key to grain transportation: Kansas and Nebraska (Midwest) and Oklahoma (South Central).

The HOS waiver will stay in effect until March 17 or the end of the emergency, whichever comes first.
