Minnesota House Approves Energy Legislation

Last week the Minnesota State House of Representatives approved  omnibus energy legislation. State Farmers Union Director of Government Relations Thom Petersen says his group was disappointed the package did not include much for dealing with propane shortages such as what was seen this winter.

Petersen says there is still concern that if there’s a lot of propane needed in the fall there could be another shortage come winter. He says the House measure did have some solar components in it.

He says the Minnesota Senate has not brought up any energy bills yet this session and his group is waiting to see what happens with that.
