NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF KANSAS GOVERNOR SAM BROWNBACK
Governor Brownback issues order for propane delivery following recent frigid temperatures
Topeka –Kansas Governor Sam Brownback issued an executive order Tuesday to grant temporary relief from motor carrier rules and regulations to ensure the continued delivery of propane to businesses and individuals across the state. Recent cold weather throughout the region prompted the decision which provides relief for 30 days. This declaration applies only to motor carriers delivering propane directly in relief efforts.
“Recent cold weather across our region and long waiting lines has created an increased demand for propane throughout our state,” Governor Brownback said. “That demand continues even after the most severe cold weather has left our area and there is a potential for rationing of propane deliveries without this action.”
Executive Order 14-02 applies only to those motor carriers delivering propane directly participating in relief efforts. In accordance with Title 49 C.F.R. § 390.23:
EO 14-02 is in effect through Feb. 14, 2014.
