(Duluth, MN) -- Governor Tim Walz is issuing an executive order to provide emergency relief from regulations governing motor carriers and drivers transporting fuel in Minnesota.

The order helps address the high demand for propane as winter starts and after recent blizzard conditions.

Walz expressed gratitude for fuel carriers and drivers, saying reliable propane delivery is important for keeping Minnesotans safe.

About ten-percent of Minnesota homes use propane as their primary heating fuel.
