RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Virginia is making it easier for farmers affected by drought to get feed, hay and other emergency supplies.
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said Monday that registration and license requirements are temporarily waived for haulers who transport such emergency supplies. Temporary waivers from weight and width restrictions also have been granted.
The exemptions began Friday and will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Oct. 6, or until drought conditions lessen.
