2008 House Bill 6608: Revise LP gas sale regulation (Senate Roll Call 780)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 29 to 9 in the Senate on December 10, 2008, to repeal a prohibition on the buying and selling of propane gas by a "flat rate" method. Reportedly, due to recent interpretations by state weights-and-measures officials, without the legislation the practice of consumers exchanging empty gas grill cylinders for full ones at retail stores might be prohibited.
