Ag Haulers Get 90-Day Waiver From Hours of Service
USAgNet - 03/14/2018

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced it has issued a 90-day waiver for agriculture haulers from hours of service regulations. The announcement follows a meeting Senator Fischer facilitated last month between several Nebraska agriculture representatives and the Deputy FMCSA Administrator, Cathy Gautreaux.

The waiver will provide the agency with more time to release guidance on the hours of service regulations as they relate to agriculture.

Cattlemen have said the regulations need to consider animal welfare, so someone hauling cattle or hogs isn't forced off the road, but can instead get to their destination.

The FMCSA previously issued a 90-day waiver that was set to expire soon.
