Maine is the latest state to invoke a weather-related emergency declaration suspending hours-of-service regulations temporarily.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage Tuesday issued an emergency declaration as a result of heavy snow storms, suspending hours-of-service regulations for truckers delivering residential and business heating fuels in the state.


HOS regs adjusted for some drivers in NH and Calif.

Snow in one state; rain in the other

Maine’s suspension of hours regulations is effective through Feb. 28, according to the declaration.
New Hampshire declared a similar emergency earlier this week in the wake of heavy snow.

In California, officials have reduced an evacuation order to a warning, allowing nearly 200,000 residents to return to their homes in the vicinity of the Oroville.
