Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation that will ease transport rules for propane in Iowa.
This proclamation will temporarily suspend regulatory provisions of Iowa code §321.449 pertaining to hours of service for crews and drivers delivering propane. High demand, along with hazardous weather conditions in the Midwest, have created challenges to timely access of propane products in the state.
The proclamation is effective at 12:01 a.m. on February 13, 2021, and expires on March 15, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.
The proclamation language and rules can be found here.
