Beekeeping Industry News You Can Use

"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."

This is important as the appropriations delay of enforcement is only for federal spending on the ELD program. We had hoped FMCSA would provide guidance of this kind to prevent over-zealous state law enforcers from expending state dollars enforcing federal law. It would be wise for livestock haulers to print and carry the information at the link above in combination with the waiver available here in the event they interact with carrier enforcement who are unaware of the delays.

Apiculture Insurance Expanded to More States

Crop Insurance for beekeeper operations has been expanded to included 19 additional states and now spans the entire 48 contiguous states. In addition to expanding API coverage, the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation Board of Directors voted to replace the statelitte-based Vegetation Index with the precipitation-based Rainfall Index for API policies.
