Gov. Brian Kemp Declares State of Emergency in Georgia Due to Supply Chain Disruptions


Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is declaring a state of emergency, citing supply chain disruptions and COVID-19.

Kemp’s Executive Order noted that while Georgia successfully mitigated public health impacts related to COVID-19, the state’s supply chain is still experiencing woes.

CBS 46 reported:

Included within the Executive Order is a temporary suspension of the federal regulations on the limitation of hours that commercial vehicle operators may drive; however, further declarations note that ill or fatigued drivers must immediately be given at least ten consecutive hours of off-duty time to rest.

The Order also touches on practices of price gouging, particularly in regards to fuel, as fuel prices remain elevated.
