Walker Asks Obama to Help Ease Propane Shortage

Created: 02/01/2014 8:58 PM WDIO.com

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has called on President Barack Obama to help ease the propane shortage.

The Wisconsin Republican sent the president a letter Saturday urging his administration to establish and lead a propane supply chain working group to help move propane from where it's available to where it's needed.

Walker says Wisconsin has received "great cooperation and assistance" from the federal government so far, and he's proposing the working group as a follow-up.

His office says in a statement that the group could include Obama administration officials, federal agencies, impacted states and the propane industry.

The propane shortage has caused delayed and reduced deliveries for customers in Wisconsin and other Midwestern states. The causes include the cold winter, a temporary pipeline closure and heavy demand for grain drying last fall.
