We need a limit on the regulations placed on fuel deliveries.  There is enough already we don't need more.  Fuel trucks that deliver to motor vehicles already have the following requirements;  HazMat Registration, NYS DOT Uniform Carrier Registration, NYS Fuel Bond, NYS Div of Corp, AFC Sticker (plus road tax), Dept of Health/Consumer Affairs Registration, Meter Inspections, Tank Visual Inspection, Tank Vapor Test, Tank Pressure Test, NYS Registration, NYS Motor Vehicle Inspection,  Bi Annual HazMat Test, Fingerprint and Background check, 5 insurances policies, and be contracted with an environmental spill company.  

Fleet Fueling or Wet Hosing to motorized equipment should not have any further restrictions placed on this service.  These restrictions would eliminate some if not most fuel deliveries to School Buses and large truck fleets.

Recreational boating is a $2 billion industry in New York.  Nassau and Suffolk Counties contain around 20% of registered boats in New York according to a 2018 Recreational Boating Report by NYS Parks and Recreation.  In 2012, Hurricane Sandy forced many marine fueling locations to close for good. This left only a handful of fuel dock locations with an outsized amount of control over the marine fueling market.  As boat owners, we deserve the option to have fuel delivered by a tank truck specifically designed to safely provide gas or diesel in a cost effective manor.  This service is permitted in many states (Texas, Florida, Georgia, Connecticut,  Maryland, Massachusetts)

Statistically this service is safer than fueling at a gas station or marina.
Please pass legislation that would allow for tank truck fuel delivery to compete fairly in the fueling marketplace.
