UNDATED (WHTC) -- The state of Michigan is one of 30 states to declare a propane energy emergency which has been in short supply due to record low temperatures, heavy snowfall and poor driving conditions.  Governor Snyder says he will issue an executive order to exempt motor carriers and drivers transporting propane and heating oil within Michigan from hours-of-service regulations and requirements through February 11th.  Similar orders were issued in December and early January.
