Gov. Reynolds signs fuel supply proclamation

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds enjoys governing.

DES MOINES – Governor Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation that eases transport rules for crews and drivers hauling motor fuels.

The proclamation temporarily suspends regulatory provisions of Iowa law pertaining to hours of service for crews and drivers hauling motor fuels, including gasoline, diesel #1, diesel #2, ethanol, and biodiesel. The proclamation also temporarily suspends provisions of Iowa law pertaining to the movement of oversize and overweight loads of fuel. Increased demand, along with above average wait times at petroleum product terminals, along with ripple effects from the Colonial pipeline shutdown, have created challenges to timely access of these fuels.

While some states across the country are experiencing shortages, the state of Iowa wants to proactively take steps to maintain supply. The proclamation is effective immediately and expires on June 19, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.

The proclamation language and rules can be found here.
