Nebraska Gov. Removes Working Hours Rules for Fuel Trucks, Citing Shortages
LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) — Gov. Jim Pillen issued an executive order Thursday “in response to regional fuel shortages” repealing some rules for truckers carrying fuel.
“The order temporarily allows drivers to work for long periods of time to transport gasoline or gasoline blends, diesel, fuel oil, ethanol, propane and biodiesel,” the governor’s office said in a news release.
The order, which remains in effect until the end of February, does say that drivers who notify their employers that they need rest must be allowed to be off work for at least 10 hours before they must return to driving.
