Gov. Snyder Extends Energy Emergency

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Governor Rick Snyder has issued an order extending the energy state of emergency until March 1 due to a shortage of propane in the state.

The executive order extends hours of service waivers for those who deliver heating oil and propane, allowing them to exceed the number of hours and consecutive days in which they can work.

The propane shortage this winter has caused delivery delays and unusually high prices for customers.

The previous order was to expire at 11:59p.m. Tuesday.
