“Despite the state’s successful mitigation of the public health impacts of COVID-19, Georgia’s supply chain has yet to fully recover and is still experiencing severe disruptions,” reads the state leader’s executive order.
Here’s more from the original report by Trending Politics.
“Supply chain issues have been hounding the local economy for a while. It has affected everything from gas prices to grocery costs. The high inflation has begun to concern experts. The executive order reads in part that commercial vehicles are allowed to be at a maximum of 95,000 pounds, 10 feet wide, and an overall length of 100 feet with a proper escort. What isn’t clear is how this commercial vehicle exception helps Georgia overcome the supply chain disruption. How many trucks can there be approximately 100 feet long? What happens after they leave Georgia?
The entire nation has been feeling the pinch of inflation and supply chain issues the past month, so how does Governor Kemp think these exceptions on the size and weight of commercial vehicles will help? Sure, letting truckers drive longer and reducing the limits of how long they can drive during a stretch does make sense to reduce the supply chain issues if trucking is the bottleneck. It’s not like manufacturers are going to conjure up huge trucks for an executive order in one state lasting 30 days, so what is the purpose of the lifting of those limits? The question though is trucking the bottleneck?
There is a bigger question though that needs to be asked. When in your entire life as an American, have you ever heard of a State of Emergency being declared due to supply chain disruptions? Even in the midst of Covid-19, we didn’t have a State of Emergency declared by a state over supply chain disruptions. The bigger question is how much does the Biden regime have a hand in the responsibility for this state of emergency? The ports have been backed up for ages. Regulations in California has only made that worse. When Trump was in office at least he stopped those regulations so we could clear the port congestion. Biden reversed Trump’s orders and now we’re all suffering. One hopes that Governor Kemps executive order helps the people of Georgia, but I sincerely doubt that it will because it isn’t a state problem it’s a national problem. Until Biden goes back to Trump’s policies in order to clear the ports in California, we will continue to have supply chain disruptions.”
The order goes into effect Saturday April 16th, 2022, at 12:00 AM and is valid for a period of 30 days expiring Sunday May 15th, 2020, two 11:59 PM unless the state of emergency is renewed by Governor Kemp.
