RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Beverly Perdue has temporarily eased restrictions on truck drivers because of winter weather, so they can keep delivering needed gasoline, home heating oil and other fuels in North Carolina.

Perdue said Friday she had signed an executive order suspending federal rules limiting how long a truck driver can work transporting essential fuels.

She said the frigid conditions and recent snow and ice in western North Carolina caused her to sign the exemption so citizens can get the fuels they need for their vehicles and homes.

The executive order signed Thursday will remain in effect up to 30 days.

NC DMV chief’s phone could listen to calls

RALEIGH, N.C. — A published report says North Carolina’s former Division of Motor Vehicles commissioner had telephone equipment installed that would let them eavesdrop on calls to any phone line at the agency’s headquarters.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that the technician who installed the equipment testified about the system before a federal grand jury.

Current DMV commissioner Mike Robertson said FBI agents interviewed him about wiretapping that might have occurred at the agency before his arrival.

It is a felony under state law to intercept phone calls without a warrant if neither person in the conversation knows the monitoring is taking place.

George Tatum, who resigned as DMV commissioner in 2007, did not respond to phone messages and an e-mail seeking comment Friday.
