The legislature's joint finance committee will hear the proposal Wednesday. The bill would help middle class people who don't qualify for low income assistance by giving them low interest *loans* to help pay for propane.
Each loan would be as much as $2500.
"These are pretty proud people,” Representative John Nygren (R – Marinette) says, “they are not looking for a handout; they're just looking to be able to weather the storm with this unexpected increase cost,"
In Marinette County alone, thirty families have reached out to emergency management --inquiring about loans.
