Peterson's request for DOT livestock transportation exemption granted

Congressman Collin C. Peterson announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has granted a one-year exemption to drivers transporting livestock and poultry from the 30-minute break requirement during the first eight hours of a shift. This requirement is part of the current Hours-of-Service (HoS) rules for truck drivers. Peterson had recently asked DOT Secretary Foxx to consider such an exemption for animal welfare.
