Posted on: 12:03 am, January 27, 2014, by , updated on: 01:23am, January 27, 2014

On Monday, lawmakers will begin trying to understand what can be done about the rising price of propane.

Last week, propane prices stored, reaching up to $5 per gallon.  Lawmakers will meet with representatives from Iowa’s propane industry to discuss how to keep propane prices down.

The propane meeting will start at 1:30 p.m. on Monday.

Lawmakers will also discuss how to file an emergency bill that could add $1-million to the low income home energy assistance program to help propane users heat their homes.
