NPGA’s Legislative Affairs team will host a webinar on May 21 at 1:00 PM ET to prepare for Propane Days, June 2-4, 2024, in Washington, D.C. The webinar will review best practices for conducting a meeting and discuss our industry’s top federal legislative priorities. This year our advocacy efforts will focus on the following:

Energy Choice – Protecting consumer choice by preventing state and local governments from enacting gas bans.
National Defense Authorization Act – Urging the Department of Defense to adopt propane-powered generators.
Federal Appropriations – Seeking federal funding from the Department of Energy for propane research, development, and demonstration projects.
Farm Bill – Promoting two asks that incentivize an increase in on-site propane storage for rural and agricultural facilities.
Alternative Fuel Tax Credit – Requesting an extension of this tax credit, which encourages consumers to adopt propane vehicles and expires at the end of 2024.
Federal Aviation Administration – Urging a long-term extension and continuing programs that incentivize the adoption of propane vehicles and generators at airport facilities.

Click here to register for the webinar. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. The webinar will be recorded and will be available on the NPGA website for those who are not able to join the live event.
