MARIETTA, GA - APRIL 10: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp speaks at a news conference about the state's new Election Integrity Law that passed this week at AJ’s Famous Seafood and Poboys on April 10, 2021 in Marietta, Georgia. Major League Baseball announced it would move the All-Star Game out of Georgia in response to the election bill, which opponents claim will negatively affect the minority population's ability to vote. There is also a concern for the economic impact this will have on the state following the MLB's decision. The bill's passage follows the Governor's decision to lift many of the restrictions in place for protection from COVID-19. (Photo by Megan Varner/Getty Images)

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has declared a state of emergency in the state, thanks to ongoing supply chain issues.

Kemp has temporarily suspended federal regulations on the limitation of hours that commercial vehicle operators can drive.  That being said, Kemp says drivers who are fatigued must immediately be given at least ten consecutive hours of off-duty time to rest. Kemp also said price gouging relating to goods and services that are needed to respond to the state of emergency is prohibited.

The order goes into effect Saturday and will end in 30 days, unless kemp decides to renew it.
