Multi-State Hours of Service Waiver Extended Again

Wednesday, March 17, 2021 – Late yesterday the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) extended and modified a regional Hours of Service waiver for the following states due to winter storms: KENTUCKY, LOUISIANA, OKLAHOMA, TEXAS, VIRGINIA, TENNESSEE AND WEST VIRGINIA through March 31.

The emergency declaration applies to all states and jurisdictions listed above. This waiver covers all fuel deliveries (heating fuels, including propane, natural gas, and heating oil, and other fuel products, including gasoline) in the states and jurisdictions listed because they support the "emergency," which in this case is maintaining adequate fuel distribution in those areas.

Important: The FMCSA waiver covers interstate shipment of fuel in and out of the states and jurisdictions listed in the waiver letter. The FMCSA waiver does not cover intrastate only shipments (deliveries that stay within the boundaries of a single state).

The state’s waiver issued by DPS has now expired. All intrastate drivers should now be following the Hours of Services rules.
