Governor Declares Propane Emergency

Governor Pat. Quinn has declared a propane supply emergency in the state. With dangerous wind chills in the forecast, the declaration is designed to ensure that customers who rely on propone will have adequate supplies. The move relaxes regulations on propane truck drivers, allowing them to drive into other states to fill their tanks. Quinn’s action also means truck drivers can spend longer times behind the wheel every day, allowing them to travel farther distances to pick up and deliver their loads.
