U.S. DOT no longer making new ag product transport regs




The U.S. Department of Transportation announced yesterday it will not propose new regulations governing the transport of agricultural products.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration also released guidance “designed to make sure states clearly understand the common sense exemptions that allow farmers… to accomplish their day-to-day work and transport their products to market.”

The guidance is similar to the public comments Montana’s Sen. Tester submitted to the agency last month, which said farmers and ranchers should not have to “jump through additional hoops or fill out needless paperwork in order to take care of simple, day-to-day chores.”

Tester, a working farmer, asked Montanans to join him in submitting comment.

“Our voices were heard,” Tester said of the Montana farmer and rancher’s comments. “The last thing hardworking folks in agriculture need is more red tape getting in the way of business.”
