SD Governor Signs Order To Speed Propane Delivery

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard has signed an executive order to speed up delivery of propane due to extremely low inventories and outages.

Daugaard’s order declares a state of emergency and exempts delivery of propane from federal motor carrier regulations on drivers’ hours of service. It was signed Wednesday.

The governor says that the continued transportation of propane is essential for agricultural operations in South Dakota.

Daugaard says that although the hours of service have been temporarily suspended for commercial deliveries, companies may not require or allow fatigued drivers to make deliveries.
