Illinois propane haulers granted HOS waiver

| January 11, 2010

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Jan. 8 it has granted an emergency waiver from hours-of-service regulations to propane haulers in response to the severe and extended cold weather the state has experienced.

IDOT says the relief extends until 11:59 p.m. Jan 22 or until the emergency subsides, whichever occurs first. Should severe weather conditions extend past that time, IDOT says it will consider an extension of relief.
