NPGA’s annual Propane Days kicks off Monday in Washington, D.C., where propane marketers, suppliers and allied trade representatives will gather over three days to discuss pertinent issues with Congress.

Among the issues expected to be at the forefront of next week’s discussions include tax extenders, pipeline advocacy, estate tax policy and parity in Department of Energy research and development programs. Click here for further detail on each of the issues.

Propane Days begins with a welcome reception Monday at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill. Legislative briefings on industry issues will be held next Tuesday, June 5, as will remarks from high-profile political leaders. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who is the lead sponsor of the Propane Act, is among those scheduled to speak June 5.

On Wednesday, June 6, NPGA is setting up an opportunity for Propane Days participants to interact with a panel of federal regulatory policymakers from key agencies affecting propane, followed by time for additional meetings with congressional senators and representatives.
