Waiver of service hours granted for fertilizer haulers

According to The Jamestown Sun, Governor Doug Burgum has issued an emergency executive order allowing a waiver of hours of service for drivers of commercial vehicles transporting anhydrous ammonia fertilizer.

The waiver comes as a reaction to a record winter snowfall and a protracted spring snowmelt season, which has resulted in North Dakota farmers facing a compressed spring planting season in some areas. Commercial truck drivers are consequently needed to transport more fertilizer in a shorter time frame.

State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring requested the waiver of hours of service so that sufficient anhydrous ammonia resources are available.

The emergency order will remain in effect until 3 June.
