Legislature expands transportation limits for farmers

Aug 10, 2020 at 02:02 PM CST

LB931, sponsored by Sen. Steve Halloran, will allow farmers to transport grain while exceeding previous weight limits by 15% and length limits by 10% to transport grain outside of harvest season. “It gives them a 15% overload cushion if you will, just like they would have during harvest,” Halloran said. According to the legislative bill, seasonally harvested commodities can now be transported while being 15% heavier from the field to market, stockpile and storage or from stockpile to market or factory when failure to do so would result in economic loss.
