FMCSA Extensions: HHEATT Act

Thursday, March 27, 2014  

On March 21, 2014, President Obama signed into law the "Home Heating Emergency Assistance Through Transportation Act of 2014" or "HHEATT Act." This law reactivates emergency exemptions that were issued or extended by FMCSA between February 5 and March 21, 2014, to provide regulatory relief for commercial motor vehicle operations directly supporting the delivery of propane and home heating fuels to areas under emergency. The declarations or extensions will remain in effect until May 31, 2014, unless terminated by FMCSA, in consultation with the governors of the applicable states. The act does not apply to intrastate motor carrier operations and only eligible interstate shipments may be covered by the exemption.

Read the declarations on the agency’s web page.
