Loan Guarantees for Emergency Heating Assistance Approved by Legislature
Last week, the State Senate unanimously approved legislation that would create a loan guarantee program to encourage financial institutions to issue emergency heating assistance loans to those burdened with higher heating bills.  As a cosponsor of this legislation, Senator Harsdorf recognizes the importance of providing relief to those impacted by the propane shortage and high prices over the winter months.  The bill having already passed the State Assembly is now awaiting action by the Governor.
