Gov. Nathan Deal today extended the executive order suspending rules limiting the hours commercial truck drivers that deliver fuel operate in order to ensure the uninterrupted supply of transportation fuel in Georgia. 
The Governor said, “Along with applying for, and receiving, a waiver from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) earlier this week, I’ve extended the executive order allowing extended operating times for commercial truck drivers to safeguard against any fuel supply issues in our state. We are confident these measures will help ensure Georgians’ uninterrupted access to motor fuel until Alabama’s pipeline is fixed.”
Colonial Pipeline continues to work on a bypass line and expects to return to full capacity by week’s end. GMTA will keep members posted.
