OKFB Praises Modified Regulations On Hay Transport During Historic Drought

Oct 13, 2022

Governor Kevin Stitt signed an executive order Tuesday, Oct. 11 temporarily waiving many load regulations for vehicles transporting hay into Oklahoma during the state’s historic drought.

The executive order expands the acceptable load width from 11 feet to 12 feet, allowing two 6-foot round bales to be loaded side-by-side. Load heights max out at 14 feet, and transport vehicles must be marked with an “oversize load” sign.
