Texas Department of Public Safety Grants Hours Waiver
At the request of the Texas Propane Gas Association (TPGA), the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has declared a local emergency exists, which justifies certain exemptions from Parts 390 through 399 of Title 49 (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations). The emergency declaration is in response to the severe weather conditions in the State of Texas. Declaration of this emergency provides relief from Title 49, CFR, Part 395.3 (maximum driving time for property-carrying vehicles) of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for motor carriers in Texas providing direct assistance to the delivery of propane and home heating oils to storage facilities and homes in the State of Texas. Consistent with Title 49, CFR, Part 390.23, the emergency declaration will take effect at 12:01 a.m., February 01, 2023, and will remain in effect for the duration of the emergency (as defined in Title 49, CFR, Part 390.5) or for five days, ending at 11:59 p.m., February 05, 2023, whichever is less. Download, print, and place the below-linked waiver in your propane delivery vehicles.
Thank you to DPS for taking quick action on this!
