Burgum Waives Hours Of Service For Haulers Of Ag Inputs During Compressed Spring Planting Season

 


BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Doug Burgum has signed an executive order granting a waiver of hours of service requirements for drivers of commercial vehicles transporting agricultural inputs including fertilizer, liquid fertilizer, anhydrous ammonia, pesticides and seed.

Late winter storms and record-breaking snowfall have resulted in a compressed time frame for planning and treating fields, forcing truck drivers to move greater amounts of agricultural inputs in a shorter amount of time to allow producers to complete planting and other work.

The 30-day waiver is effective now. All road safety and vehicle compliance regulations still apply.
