MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is asking President Obama to help with a propane shortage in Wisconsin.

Walker sent Obama a letter on Wednesday asking his administration to speed up the release of money that helps pay for heating costs for those with low income.

Walker also said he welcomed a review of the impact of propane exports on domestic supply and price and any regulatory barriers that could ease the shipment of propane delivery.

Walker says he also supports the Federal Trade Commission monitoring the spike in wholesale propane to ensure there is no anti-competitive activity.

Walker said Wednesday he plans to speak about the propane issue with Obama when he greets the president Thursday during a stop in the Milwaukee area.
