Emergency Declaration to Include Fuel Deliveries

O​n March 18, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued an expanded national emergency declaration to provide hours-of-service and other regulatory relief to commercial vehicle drivers transporting emergency relief in response to the nationwide coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the New England Fuel Institute reported in a Regulatory Alert emailed to members.

“In keeping with NEFI’s request from earlier this week, the expanded declaration includes relief for fuel delivery,” the Institute noted.

The exemption is in effect immediately and will remain in effect until the emergency has ceased or 11:59 p.m. on April 12, 2020, whichever is earlier.
