Truck drivers hauling hay and other relief supplies to Oklahoma and Kansas are exempt from certain regulations as a result of emergency declarations in each state due to wildfires.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin declared a State of Emergency earlier this month suspending size and weight permit requirements, licensing and operating authority requirements and more.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a similar emergency declaration to help facilitate the delivery of “large quantities of hay, feed, fencing materials and other relief supplies.”

As reported recently by Overdrive sister site Truckers News Editor David Hollis, convoys of trucks have delivered hay, feed and other supplies to the region. Farmers, farm supply stores and other groups from different states have donated supplies or raised money to help farmers affected by the wildfires.

Additionally, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association created a resource for what is needed in each state.
