Indiana Committee Considers HB 1191
HB 1191 would “ban the ban” by prohibiting a city, town or county from banning natural gas or propane hookups in the jurisdiction. This bill is in response to proposed gas bans seen in Berkeley, CA and Ann Arbor, MI. The bill will ensure that homeowners, builders, and business owners have access to balanced energy solutions that are efficient, affordable and clean.

The IPGA supports and is actively working to pass the legislation in the 2021 legislation session.
Don't Waste Time, Use PLAN!
Since the Propane Logistics Analysis Network (PLAN) launched in late 2019, more than 1,300 wait times have been reported at supply points around the country with over 4,000 users! 
 
PLAN is a crowd sourced online tool, which means it relies on active user reports from people like you, marketers, drivers, dispatchers, terminal managers, and wholesalers. It takes less than a minute to submit a wait time from your mobile device or desktop computer. Your use of PLAN will encourage others to use it too.  

Before PLAN, there was no centralized tool to help drivers maximize their hours of service when there is a wait at a supply point. Recently updated, PLAN displays wait times reported by users at terminals around the country. NPGA developed PLAN with the support of NPGA’s Propane Supply & Logistics Committee and with the assistance of industry members and state and regional propane associations. 
 
PLAN is available online and through an update to the NPGAction app. To get the NPGAction app, visit the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Please note PLAN does not represent supply levels, pricing, or other market variables, and may be subject to error.
 
With your help and continued use, this tool will grow and provide timely information to the industry. Please contact us with any questions.
