Governor expands suspension of motor carrier rules to aid in drought relief


Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback issued an executive order Oct. 6 to expand the temporary suspension of certain motor carrier rules and regulations in order expedite efforts to transport hay to livestock in drought-stricken areas.

Executive Order 11-38 expands Executive Order 11-25 to now apply not only to individuals hauling hay to livestock in drought-stricken areas of Kansas, but also to those making deliveries to Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.

The order temporarily suspends the requirements to receive over dimensional permits from the Kansas Department of Transportation, registration and fuel tax permits from the Kansas Department of Revenue and permits from the Kansas Corporation Commission. Motor carriers participating in the relief efforts also will be allowed to travel during nighttime hours if the over dimensional load is marked with clearance lights or escort vehicles are used.

Participating motor carriers are limited to a load that does not exceed 12 feet in width and does not exceed a height of 14 feet, six inches. Under normal circumstances, haulers are required to get a permit for loads exceeding 8 1/2 feet in width and/or 14 feet in height. All other applicable state and federal regulations continue to apply, including the requirement of having a valid driver's license.
