Kansas Eases Hay Hauling Rules
07/29/2011
 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Sam Brownback has signed an order

making it easier to deliver hay quickly to drought-stricken parts

of Kansas.

An executive order signed Wednesday suspends certain motor

carrier rules and regulations for people hauling hay to livestock.

Those include rules on permits, load sizes and nighttime travel of

oversized loads.

Severe drought has left pastures in poor condition in many parts

of Kansas, making it hard for livestock producers to feed their

herds. Brownback says the result is an emergency that makes it

necessary to get hay quickly to those areas.

Brownback's office says the executive order will be in effect

until it's rescinded or until drought emergency and disaster

declarations are lifted.
