Governor Abbott Suspends Trucking Regulations To Aid In Hurricane Irma Relief

AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott today issued a proclamation suspending laws and regulations related to interstate trucking through the state of Texas. This suspension will allow commercial vehicles to travel more quickly and deliver aid to states directly affected by Hurricane Irma.

"Texas remains united with Florida and other states impacted by Irma as we all begin to rebuild together after these devastating hurricanes," said Governor Abbott. "Just as I have pledged to do all I can to help Texas recover, I will also make sure recovery efforts in other areas are not hindered by burdensome regulations. I pray that all those affected by Irma have a swift recovery, and I thank all those who have helped Texas in our time of need."

This suspension of laws and regulations will be coordinated through the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Read the Governor’s proclamation.
