(DES MOINES) – Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation Friday temporarily suspending certain regulatory provisions pertaining to hours of service for the delivery of propane.

Extreme winter weather conditions and high demand for petroleum products throughout the Midwest have resulted in low supplies of propane. The proclamation temporarily suspends provisions of Iowa Code § 321.449 pertaining to hours of service for crews and drivers delivering propane.

The proclamation is effective immediately. It will expire at midnight on Jan. 3, 2018.
