LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT – Ask Your Member of Congress to Co-Sponsor HR 5988 to Exempt Propane Tank Deliveries/Retrievals from OSHA’s Crane Rule
BREAKING NEWS! Congressman Drew Ferguson of Georgia today introduced HR 5988, the Common Sense Certification Reform Act, which would exempt the propane industry from the third-party certification requirement in OSHA’s Crane & Derricks in Construction Rule. This rule, which takes effect on November 10 unless Congress exempts our industry, effectively requires every propane technician to get third-party certification to operate a truck crane for propane tank deliveries and retrievals at a cost to the industry of over $150 million every 5 years. We need as many propane industry members as possible to send emails to urge their member of Congress to co-sponsor the bill.

It is important you do this TODAY! The propane industry is headed to Washington, DC, for Propane Days, and the more letters we get into Congressional offices, the easier it is for our industry members to get co-sponsors on Tuesday and Wednesday during their Capitol Hill meetings.
If you have any questions, please contact Lesley Garland.
