Home Heating Act passes

A piece of legislation called the Home Heating Act passed in the U.S. Senate Wednesday.

The bill will help to minimize future propane and heating fuel shortages and regional supply disruptions. The bill would also allow governors greater autonomy when they declare emergencies and also require the Energy Information Administration to provide early warnings to governors if the inventory of residential heating fuel falls below the most recent five-year average for more than three consecutive weeks.

Republican U.S. Senator John Thune of South Dakota was one of two lawmakers who presented the bill.
