Governor McMaster has issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency. The executive order enables all state agencies to coordinate resources in preparation for Hurricane Irma.
The current emergency declaration issued by Governor McMaster does not automatically waive HOS and size and weight requirements for motor carriers. We will let members know as soon as any such declarations are issued in response to the potential impacts of Hurricane Irma.
Currently, fuel transporters have HOS and Size and Weight relief under emergency declarations issued last week. More details can be found here. Any motor carriers offering relief assistance to Texas as a result of Hurricane Harvey are offered relief by a regional FMCSA declaration. More details on that can be found here.
