WHEREAS, on December 15, 2022, I declared a State of Emergency and waived Section 323.030, RSMo, and 2 C.S.R. 90-10.019 to allow other entities registered to fill liquefied petroleum gas containers in this state to fill containers owned by Gygr-Gas through Executive Order 22-08; and
WHEREAS, Gygr-Gas has been unresponsive to customers for months, resulting in low or empty propane tanks for many of their customers and leaving them without the ability to heat their homes and businesses; and
WHEREAS, Executive Order 22-08 is set to expire on January 1, 2023; and
WHEREAS, extending Executive Order 22-08 is necessary to assist customers abandoned by Gygr-Gas until there is a permanent propane supplier for those affected; and
WHEREAS, individuals across Missouri will need access to propane to heat their homes and business during the upcoming winter months; and
WHEREAS, continued assistance from other propane companies is requested to ensure affected Missouri families and businesses are not negatively impacted.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, MICHAEL L. PARSON, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI, by virtue and authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the State of Missouri, do hereby extend Executive Order 22-08, and the State of Emergency and waivers declared therein, until January 31, 2023, unless terminated or extended by subsequent order.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused to be affixed the Great Seal of the State of Missouri, in the City of Jefferson, on this 29th day of December, 2022.
