The New York Department of Transportation executed an order for a limited waiver of some hours of service regulations for intrastate motor carriers delivering propane. The limited waiver is in response to ongoing vehicle deliveries to replace delayed rail cars by the Canada National (CN) railway.
The state of Vermont executed an emergency notice to waive hours of service requirements in response to the strike of 3,200 workers on the Canadian National Railway. The strike of CN rail workers delayed propane rail car deliveries that some operations must replace via transport vehicle. The waiver is in effect beginning at midnight December 5 through December 28, 2019.
