Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has declared a state of emergency in the state, thanks to ongoing supply chain issues.
Kemp has temporarily suspended federal regulations on the limitation of hours that commercial vehicle operators can drive. That being said, Kemp says drivers who are fatigued must immediately be given at least ten consecutive hours of off-duty time to rest. Kemp also said price gouging relating to goods and services that are needed to respond to the state of emergency is prohibited.
The order goes into effect Saturday and will end in 30 days, unless kemp decides to renew it.
