Governor Eric J. Holcomb signed an executive order Friday afternoon to lift regulations on commercial vehicles transporting goods to retailers, some of which are running short on supplies.

Shoppers around the Kentuckiana area depleted stores shelves in the last few days of water, toilet paper, cleaners and other staples; stocking up ahead of coming school closuers and potential other shut downs.

Drivers of commercial vehicles, including those who deliver food, goods, and items to Indiana businesses for purchase or use by Hoosiers as well as delivery of items for emergency preparedness, are limited by in the number of hours they can work in a single day.

This waives those regulations.
