Gov. Dayton, Gov. Walker Send Letter To Obama Asking For Help In Propane Shortage
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and five other governors are writing to President Obama asking for help in addressing the propane shortage and price increases.
The Associated Press reports these governors are asking for the administration to help increase propane supplies through “every means of transport.”
The AP report states that the governors encouraged President Obama to consider regulatory waivers aimed at increasing supplies and hoped the Small Business Administration would ease loan requirements to help communities respond to the shortage.
The letter also said they wanted to explore actions to improve supply stability in future years. The letter dated Tuesday was sent through the Midwest Governor’s Association, of which Dayton is chair.
The other governors included were Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
