Included within the Executive Order is a temporary suspension of the federal regulations on the limitation of hours that commercial vehicle operators may drive; however, further declarations note that ill or fatigued drivers must immediately be given at least ten consecutive hours of off-duty time to rest.
The Order also touches on practices of price gouging, particularly in regards to fuel, as fuel prices remain elevated.
