Gov. Sam Brownback has revised an executive order making it easier for drought-stricken livestock producers to get hay to their animals.

Thursday's order replaces one Brownback issued in late July waiving some rules for trucks on Kansas roads.

The order suspends requirements for registration and fuel tax permits from the state Revenue Department. It also suspends several regulations of the Kansas Corporation Commission.

Brownback says the goal is to make it easier to deliver hay to livestock in places where drought has damaged or destroyed pastures and silage crops.

Brownback also announced that Marshall County has been declared a federal natural disaster area, bringing all 105 Kansas counties under federal designation.
