Please see the Regulatory Alert posted at and send in written comments to FMCSA regarding the Hours of Service exemption for agricultural inputs.  We are fighting very hard to keep the exemption for all movements of fertilizer from the terminals and warehouses to retail sites.  Right now the FMCSA is only proposing to grant a 2 year exemption for anhydrous ammonia.  A sample letter is posted on the IFCA website.  Your comments are critical to persuade FMCSA to expand the exemption to all forms of fertilizer.  If you have questions contact Jean Payne.
