03-24-2020 - COVID-19:  Information subject to change quickly

MABA and MGEA Company Leaders:


Please find below updated information on federal activities related to our industry and implications of COVID-19.


National Food and Ag Letter to Governors


40 national food and agriculture organizations sent a letter today to all 50 Governors requesting that they “incorporate the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) guidance and any future amendments into their state response plan, and any critical shelter-in-place or shut down orders for their state, allowing these workers, facilities and services to continue to operate and provide necessary inputs for the food and agriculture supply chain.”

We strongly encourage you to share this letter with your state and local officials. 


Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration


Enforcement Notice on Expiring CDLs 

https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/emergency/enforcement-notice-expiring-cdls-32420

This Notice of Enforcement Policy, effective from March 24, 2020 to June 30, 2020, provides needed relief from specified FMCSRs for CLP holders, CDL holders, and non-CDL drivers and motor carriers using those drivers.  This Notice of Enforcement Policy applies to all CLP holders, CDL holders, and non-CDL drivers whose license was issued for less than the maximum period established by 49 CFR 383.25 and 383.73 and was valid on February 29, 2020 and expired on or after March 1, 2020.


Waiver for States, CDL Holders, CLP Holders, and Interstate Drivers Operating Commercial Motor Vehicles

https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/emergency/fmcsa-cdl-waiver-32420

 

The waiver is effective until June 30, 2020 and provides important relief resulting from situations where many CDL and CLP holders are unable to renew their CDLs and CLPs and are unable to provide medical certificates to their State Driver Licensing Agencies. In addition, many medical providers nationwide have canceled regularly scheduled appointments to dedicate resources to the COVID-19 response. As a result, drivers are unable to obtain appointments for physical examinations with medical examiners.
