South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued an executive order on Tuesday to combat the supply chain crisis. The order suspends the application or enforcement of certain state and federal regulations pertaining to registration, size and hours of service for commercial vehicles and operators of commercial vehicles. It also calls on state agencies to evaluate regulations and modify them in order to provide relief to the supply chain. The hope is that cargo can move more smoothly and efficiently through South Carolina ports and roads. On top of issuing the executive order, McMaster was among 15 GOP governors to join “Operation Open Roads” on Monday. It’s an effort to fight supply chain issues that have been hitting across the country. The letter to the Biden Administration states that disruptions due to supply shortage have increased 638% during the first half of 2021.
