** Dive Brief:
* Maryland has waived International Fuel Tax Association requirements for port truckers, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has extended its emergency declaration for drivers providing direct assistance to the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse response.
* IFTA rules will be waived through May 31 for motor carriers hauling freight to or from a seaport, Maryland Comptroller Brooke Lierman wrote in a letter to IFTA Executive Director and CEO Carmen Martorana (https://www.mdtrucking.org/files/040124IFTAWaiver.pdf) . The state will also extend the April 30 quarterly IFTA tax return deadline until June 30, Lierman said.
