Farm equipment transportation rules passed

Farm equipment dealers have more shipping options under a bill passed by senators April 10.

LB1039, introduced by Fullerton Sen. Annette Dubas, allows farm equipment dealers to designate commercial haulers as their agents when moving their equipment. Haulers are required to carry documentation signed by the dealers identifying them as dealer representatives.

The bill also permits commercial haulers to follow the same width, height and length restrictions reserved specifically for farm equipment dealers.

Senators passed the bill on a 48-0 vote.
