WEST VIRGINIA ENACTS CONTAINER LAW

Written on: April 10, 2023

West Virginia Governor, Jim Justice, recently signed HB 3210, Relating to the Performance of Installation of Propane Gas Systems, into law. This legislation states that a propane container shall only be installed, filled or utilized upon authorization by its owner. Container laws, such as this, are an important mechanism to enhance safety and promote best practices throughout the industry. The majority of states already have these types of protections on their books.

Amber Perry, Executive Director of the West Virginia Propane Gas Association, spearheaded the bill through the legislature in Charleston. “The West Virginia Propane Gas Association thanks Governor Justice for signing HB 3210 into law. Our membership is very pleased to have this vital piece of safety legislation now in state statute. We look forward to continuing to work with Governor Justice for the remainder of his term,” Perry said.

NPGA has compiled an overview of state container laws, which is available on the My State section of NPGA’s website. For more information, contact NPGA’s Jacob Peterson at jpeterson@npga.org.
