Dayton extends deliveries to farmers

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton signed an executive order Wednesday allowing trucks hauling propane and anhydrous ammonia to deliver to farmers beyond normal operating times allowed by the state.

Dayton said late maturing corn in the Upper Midwest means farmers are working long hours later in the year, opening the need for supplies to be delivered past normal hours of service.
