MI Lawmakers Take Action on Propane Shortage

The Upper Peninsula’s delegation to Lansing is taking action as propane shortages continue in the region. State Senators Tom Casperson and Howard Walker and the U.P.’s four state representatives issued a joint statement Monday after the Michigan Public Service Commission reported that propane inventories in the U.P. are 43-percent below last year’s levels. That has sent prices skyrocketing to six dollars a gallon. The U.P. lawmakers are asking Attorney General Bill Schuette to keep an eye out for price gouging. They’re also working with the governor and the PSC to lift regulations that make it tough to get supplies into the region. Lastly, the lawmakers are asking all U.P. residents to conserve as much propane as possible.
