A bill that will allow those who lease propane tanks, to use alternate suppliers in the event of an emergency situation, has passed in the Assembly.
Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara proposed the bill, and tells News Channel 13 he hopes the Senate passes the bill as soon as possible.
"It's a stressful time, you're thinking about it everyday, 'When is the delivery going to come?,' and it's simply unacceptable to leave these families without heat and no options, they have no heat, and no delivery truck has come, and they're stuck in that situation, at the mercy of one supplier."
The bill will block suppliers that fill the tank, from charging extra fees or penalties, and will also prevent the company that owns the tank from charging a penalty.
