State of Emergency Expanded to Support Delivery of Propane and Groceries
WASHINGTON-- Gov. Jay Inslee issued an updated state of emergency proclamation on Saturday that expands certain exemptions necessary for ensuring timely delivery of certain goods and products. The original proclamation granted exemptions to commercial vehicle drivers collecting or delivering bulk milk products and de-icing salt. Inslee has expanded those exemptions to commercial drivers collecting and delivering essential food and emergency supplies to grocery stores and those delivering bulk propane fuel supplies.
On Friday Gov. Jay Inslee declared a statewide state of emergency in preparation for a winter storm expected to move through the Pacific Northwest later today and throughout the weekend.
