Branstad Declares Energy Emergency
DES MOINES (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
Governor Branstad says he's pushing to relieve the propane shortage burden.
Branstad today declared a Proclamation of Disaster and Energy Emergency in Iowa because of the record high demand for propane.
The proclamation authorizes all available state resources, supplies, and equipment to be used as necessary to get propane to the people who need it.
Branstad also issued disaster declarations in December and earlier this month, which waived some driving restrictions on propane transporters.
