Lawmaker Seeks ''Energy Emergency'' Declaration

A local lawmaker says Governor Pat Quinn should declare an “energy emergency” in the state. 


High demand during the harsh winter has sent propane prices soaring, as the supply of the fuel shrinks.  Senator Sam McCann says an emergency declaration would change load limit rules on Illinois interstates, to allow more propane to be trucked in. 


It could also expand energy-assistance programs for the poor.
