Governor Mark Dayton and several other Midwest Governors spoke with Texas Governor Rick Perry via telephone about the propane emergency in Minnesota.
Last Thursday, January 23rd, Governor Perry waived trucking restrictions in the State of Texas, which increased the flow of propane to Minnesota and other states. That waiver was set to expire on Wednesday, February 5th. Governor Dayton thanked Governor Perry today for his previous assistance, and asked him to extend that waiver when it expires next week.
Dayton said this will help withMinnesota's shortage.
Following the call, Governor Dayton said he told Governor Perry how important his previous waiver had been to Minnesotans, who are suffering severely from this propane crisis. He very graciously agreed to extend the waiver when it expires next week.
