MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- Governor Scott Walker has called on the federal government to help ease the propane shortage.
The shortage has caused delayed and reduced deliveries for customers in Wisconsin and across the Midwest. Causes include the cold winter and a temporary pipeline closure.
Walker sent President Barack Obama a letter Saturday urging his administration to establish a propane supply chain working group to help move propane from where it's available to where it's needed. The proposed group would include Obama administration officials, federal agencies, impacted states and the propane industry.
Walker says the group would be a follow up to "great cooperation and assistance" from the federal government so far.
