Washington Governor Jay Inslee issued an updated state of emergency proclamation Saturday afternoon that expands some exemptions necessary for timely delivery of certain goods and products.

Under the the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, commercial drivers are limited to a certain number of hours they can be on the road.

Yesterday, Inslee exempted drivers collecting or delivering bulk milk products and de-icing salt.

Today’s expansion extends that exemption to commercial drivers collecting and delivering essential food and emergency supplies to grocery stores and those delivering bulk propane fuel supplies.
