Fleets Belonging to TV Industry & Utilities Win Waiver on Hours-of-Service Rules

February 2, 2004

A provision in the federal government's spending bill that cleared Congress prohibits regulators from enforcing new hours-of-service (HOS) rules on commercial truck drivers who work in the film and television industry, according to the Wall Street Journal. The 100-word provision in the bill says the government is effectively barred from enforcing the regulations on "drivers engaged in the transportation of property or passengers to or from a motion picture or television production site located within a 100-air mile radius of the work reporting location of such drivers."A spokesman for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said the senator sponsored the provision because these drivers typically travel less than 100 miles a day and often rest at the production sites, reported the Wall Street Journal.
