What is the definition of Agricultural Commodity?

Agricultural Commodity means:

  1. Any agricultural commodity, non-processed food, feed, fiber, or livestock as defined in this section.
  2. As used in this definition, the term “any agricultural commodity” means horticultural products at risk of perishing, or degrading in quality, during transport by commercial motor vehicle, including plants, sod, flowers, shrubs, ornamentals, seedlings, live trees, and Christmas trees.

On November 15th, 2021, the law was changed to include a 150-air mile radius from the DESTINATION in addition to the 150-air mile radius SOURCE, for livestock and insect haulers.  As a result of the law change, livestock and insect haulers are exempt hours of service when they are LOADED and within 150-air miles of their destination.  If they are returning empty, they are subject to hours of service until they are within 150-air miles of the source.
