Propane Shortage Prompts Action From Local Lawmakers


Local lawmakers are taking action to help families cope with a critical shortage of propane.

 

Senator Sam McCann has introduced emergency legislation to expand home heating assistance to help more families who are struggling as the price of the heating fuel has skyrocketed during the harsh winter.

 

McCann’s bill would further ease load limits on Illinois interstates, so that more propane could be trucked into the state more quickly.

 

Meanwhile, Representative Raymond Poe is asking for investigations into allegations of price-gouging and other shady business practices by companies seeking to take advantage of the price spike.
