Propane Shortage Eleicits Emergency Declaration By Gov. Walker

Governor Scott Walker on Friday signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency in Wisconsin, in response to propane shortages and increased wait times to obtain propane. These challenges are due, in large part, to the below-normal temperatures experienced across the Midwest and a shortage of drivers. Governor Walker’s order exempts drivers in the process of obtaining or transporting propane from certain federal and state requirements to mitigate the propane supply shortage. This emergency declaration expires on January 28th.
