Electronic Logging Devices Waiver Information
**ELD Mandate Included in Omnibus Spending Bill**
The Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) updated their website reflecting the prohibition on enforcement of the ELD mandate on livestock and insect haulers.
Effective immediately through June 18, 2018, the existing waiver from the ELD requirements for all transporters of agricultural commodities, including livestock, will remain in effect.
Livestock (as defined in 49 CFR 395.2) and insect haulers are not required to comply with the ELD rule for the duration of the FY 2018 appropriations bill (September 30, 2018), and any subsequent continuing resolutions.
Further guidance will be provided as we near the June 18, 2018 expiration for the existing waiver, and upon the publication of any new continuing resolutions or appropriations.
Farm Bureau encourages haulers operating under these exemptions to print and carry the information at this link in combination with the waiver available here in the event of an interaction with carrier enforcement.
