U.S. House passes propane help for Michigan

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Help could be on the way soon for Michigan residents struggling to heat their homes due to the high price of propane.

The U.S. House passed legislation last night allowing delivery truck drivers hauling the fuel to work longer hours through May 31, similar to extensions already in place in Michigan.  Congressman Fred Upton of St. Joseph, who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, notes more people in Michigan have been affected by the propane issue than other states.

The Energy Department puts the most recent average price in Michigan at $3.36 a gallon, down from a peak of $3.77 one month ago.
