The National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) is the national trade association representing the US propane gas industry. It has advocated on behalf of the industry for over 80 years advancing its mission of achieving safety and increasing the use of propane through sound public policy. Fulfilling this mission relies on the association’s ability to educate policymakers and legislators on the continued value propane brings to the consumer as well as to America’s energy portfolio. PropanePAC was created to serve as a tool to for the association to educate and support federal legislators who are friendly to the industry.
PropanePAC’s mission is to encourage NPGA member involvement in the political process and to help NPGA achieve its strategic advocacy priorities and goals. It does this by:
· Supporting the best federal candidates for Congress, irrespective of party affiliation;
· Embracing the value of civic and corporate responsibility;
· Encouraging voting as a fundamental right of citizenship; and
· Educating members of the propane industry on how public policy directly affects the industry, their community, and their livelihood.
