Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly announced the signing of a new executive order during a news conference today.
Executive Order No. 20-22 extends relief for motor carriers traveling in Kansas.
“It will allow motor carriers to continue offering quick and efficient delivery of resources needed across Kansas to combat this health crisis,” Kelly said.
Specifically, the order will ease certain restrictions and requirements.
“The order lifts certain weight restrictions and permitting requirements to allow needed medical supplies, food shipments and other items to move through Kansas as quickly as possible,” Kelly said. “These exceptions apply only to motor carriers actively participating in COVID-19 efforts.”
