The governor of Georgia declared a supply chain state of emergency starting April 16. The executive order, which runs until May 16, was in response to the state’s supply chain challenges. The order bans price gouging on diesel fuel and gasoline and increases the maximum allowed gross vehicle weight and width on Georgia’s state and local roads.
While it’s unclear what economic impact the order will have, industry leaders are closely watching to see if it will set a precedent for other states.
