Governor Mike Parson has signed an executive order temporarily relaxing hours of service regulations for commercial motor vehicles transporting residential heating fuels.
Current federal and state regulations limit the number of hours commercial truck drivers can operate to 11 consecutive hours. The executive order temporarily suspends these regulations for motor carriers transporting heating fuel such as propane, natural gas, and heating oil. No other petroleum products or fuels are covered under the order.  Missouri is joining 14 other states who have taken action to temporarily waive or relax maximum driving hours. The Executive Order will remain in effect until February 21st, unless otherwise extended.
