trucking49The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) has again extended emergency declarations. This means that they have waived certain federal regulations for those involved in the interstate hauling of emergency relief supplies as cold weather continues in the Midwest and Northeast.

The FMCSA based these declarations are based on input they received from governors or their designated representatives as to the need for propane and other home heating fuel, along with road salt and similar supplies.

All of the new extensions are set to expire on March 15 or when the emergency ends, whichever is sooner.

The states where the emergency declarations are being extended for deliveries of propane and other home heating fuels, along with salt or other anti-icing supplies to maintain safe roads include Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont, which are served by one FMCSA regional office, along with Ohio, which is served by a separate one.

Regulations are being waived for propane and other home heating fuel deliveries in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, while regulations are being waived for propane and diesel fuel shipments in South Dakota.

There are no new declarations for the Southern region, as the governors from the area did not indicate a need for them, according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.
