Wisconsin Senate Passes Propane Loan Program

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 at 12:12 pm

The Wisconsin Senate has passed a bill that would create a new loan program to offset high propane prices.

Under the bill passed Tuesday, the state would guarantee up to $2,500 in loans to purchase propane or other heating supplies and pay down interest. The borrower’s household income could not be higher than double the county median household income, however.

The Assembly overwhelmingly approved the bill last month. The Senate’s unanimous vote passing it now sends the measure to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature.
