Sample article from our Government & Public Policy

August 29, 2022 (press release) –

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced today as part of the federal government’s response to the shutdown of the BP Whiting refinery, that the USDOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is taking steps to create more flexibility for motor carriers and drivers. FMCSA is issuing a temporary hours of service exemption that applies to those transporting gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other refined petroleum products to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
USDOT’s top priority is safety. While current circumstances dictate providing industry flexibility, FMCSA has notified and will continue to work closely with its state and industry partners to monitor driver work hours and conditions for the duration of the exemption.
