Governor Lombardo Declares Liquid Petroleum Gas Delivery Emergency

January 09, 2023

Tonight, Governor Joe Lombardo issued a proclamation declaring a liquid petroleum gas delivery emergency in Nevada.

Recent storms, along with existing supply chain issues, have delayed the delivery of propane in Nevada. These widespread delivery delays have caused a drop in propane supply. Given ongoing severe weather conditions, it is critical that Nevadans have access to adequate propane supplies.

To immediately address the propane delivery emergency ahead of more severe winter weather, Governor Lombardo has facilitated a temporary suspension of motor carrier regulations. The suspension of these regulations will expedite the propane delivery process in Nevada and help support critical state infrastructure, while ensuring the health and safety of Nevadans amidst ongoing winter storms.

The full text of the emergency proclamation is attached.
