Montana Protects Energy Choice
Earlier this month, Montana became the 24th state to enact state-level protections for energy freedom and consumer choice. Senate Bill 208, which was recently signed into law by Governor Gianforte, prohibits a unit of local government, such as a county or locality, from prohibiting or impeding access to the connection or reconnection of an energy source, including specifically propane. This ensures propane remains an energy option for residential and commercial buildings. Notably, all four states that constitute the Rocky Mountain Propane Association – Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming – now have energy choice laws on the books.
Tom Clark, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Propane Association, has been working on securing these state protections across his regional association since 2021. “Energy choice legislation is much more than protecting the propane industry. It’s about energy security. I’m proud that we had a voice in these energy choice bills that give energy security to the American family. Thanks to everyone that participated in these bills, including the NPGA state affairs team,” Clark said.
Based on the 2021 sales report, 41% of all LP gallons are sold in energy choice states. For more information, contact NPGA’s Director of State Affairs, Jacob Peterson.
