Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes (CGS) §14- 163c, and the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies §14-163c-10, the Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles, Antonio Guerrera, has granted a limited exemption from the provisions of 49 CFR §395.3, specifically for the intrastate transportation of gasoline, diesel fuel, fuel oil, biodiesel and propane, in connection with an impending wind storm, and low temperatures, that may cause further delays to drivers that are already waiting to resupply heating fuel suppliers that are out of fuel.
Given the impending high winds, and the low temperatures, the resupply may not occur until after the storm has passed, and any problems that may be associated with said storm, and low temperatures, and its impact on the State of Connecticut. This emergency exemption is effective beginning Thursday, December 22, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. EST.
The emergency declaration remains in effect until Tuesday, December 27, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Note that drivers of motor carriers that operate under the Declaration of Emergency Exemption Notice must have a copy of it in their possession.
