Cold Weather Eases Transportation Restrictions
As Missouri’s arctic weather continues- with single-digit temperatures through this week, Governor Mike Parson – by executive order — has temporarily relaxed hours of service regulations for commercial trucks transporting residential heating fuels.
Current federal and state regulations limit the number of hours commercial truck drivers can operate to 11 consecutive hours. The order temporarily suspends these regulations transporting heating fuel such as propane, natural gas, and heating oil.
No other petroleum products or fuels are covered under the order.
