CHEYENNE — Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has signed an executive order to allow motor carriers delivering propane to operate outside the regular operating daylight hours.

Under the emergency relief order issued by Gordon, a state of emergency exists in Wyoming for the prompt delivery of propane. This emergency requires that propane transportation and delivery within the State of Wyoming be exempt from existing regulations.

However, nothing contained in the order will be construed as an exemption from the controlled substances, alcohol use, and testing requirements (49 CFR 382), the commercial driver’s license requirements (49 CFR 383), the financial responsibility requirements (49 CFR 387), applicable size and weight requirements, or any other portion of the regulations not specifically identified in the order.

While under this order, propane transportation or delivery companies will not require or allow any fatigued driver to operate a propane delivery vehicle. A driver who informs a carrier that they need immediate rest shall be given adequate rest before the driver is required to return to service.

The order expires no later than midnight, February 7, 2022.

Questions about the order can be directed to Wyoming Highway Patrol Captain Dan Wyrick or Lieutenant Dustin Ragon at 307-777-4301.
