Alabama Governor Kay Ivey declared an emergency in response to severe weather and temperatures in the state. The emergency declaration waives intrastate hours-of-service requirements for those providing assistance in the state, including the delivery of propane.
The waiver is effective 3:00 pm CST Monday, January 28, 2019 for thirty days, until February 26, 2019. The governor’s declaration is in addition to a current FMCSA Regional Emergency Declaration for direct assistance to those continuing to recover from Hurricane Michael, which expires March 19, 2019.
