The National Pork Producers Council is thanking the Biden administration for extending a waiver for commercial truckers from the federal Hours of Service regulation.  Since the start of the pandemic last year, livestock haulers have been exempt from the rule limiting truckers to 11 hours of driving time and 14 consecutive hours of on-duty time in any 24-hour period.  The waiver subsequently was expanded to cover the delivery of livestock feed.  NPPC President Jen Sorenson says, “Extending the HOS waiver ensures that livestock truckers can get hogs to market safely and efficiently.”  The new waiver is valid through February 28th.
