Senator Fischer’s HAULS Act
Jessica Herrmann, Vice President of Legal & Governmental Affairs, talks about Senator Fischer’s HAULS Act.
Three really important updates to federal law that relates to Hours of Service reform.
- Eliminate the planting and harvest season requirements for the ag hours-of-service exemption. (This is not necessarily applicable in Nebraska as our planting and harvest season is year round, but this is a much needed fix for other states. For a full state-by-state list, click here.)
- Add a 150 air-mile hours-of-service exemption to the destination of a haul. (This is a huge NC priority for HOS reform. If you’ll recall, this idea actually originated from NC’s Transportation Task Force meeting back in June 2017.)
- Update the FMCSA definition of “agricultural commodity.” (Essentially just brings in non-processed product planted or harvested for food, feed, fuel or fiber).
