Governor Scott Walker appealed to President Obama today for more assistance with the lingering propane shortage plaguing the Midwest.

Walker sent a letter to the President asking him to establish a propane supply chain.

The goal of the propane supply chain would be to transport propane from areas in the US where it is abundant to areas like Wisconsin, where supply is low.

Walker says that leadership of this supply chain by the federal government is necessary for it to be successful.

"The people will be better served if we develop a contingency plan we never use than find ourselves in a crisis for which we had no plan," said Walker.
