**Sen. Tiffany Email Alert**

February 3rd, 2014

Area Lawmakers Join Senator Tiffany at Propane Press Conference
Madison – State Senator Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst), State Representative Mary Czaja (R-Irma), State Representative Jeff Mursau (R-Crivitz) and State Representative Rob Swearingen (R-Rhinelander) are asking Wisconsin residents to make a donation to those in need during this propane shortage after pledging their support at a press conference in Rhinelander.

 “As a result of numerous constituent contacts throughout this unprecedented propane shortage asking how people can help and where they can donate, we all wanted to make a donation and reach out to our constituents in the hope that those who are able will do the same,” Tiffany said.  “We want to reach out because even though the holidays have passed, there are still families in need this winter.”

“I have personally heard from constituents about the impact that this shortage is having on their family, friends, and neighbors,” commented Czaja.  “We want to give back to ensure that people can stay both safe and warm and will not have to choose between heating their home and feeding their family.”

 “Today, we are asking residents all across the state to make a contribution to the Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund or contact their County Clerk to make a donation to the County Department which will provide needed resources throughout this shortage,” added Mursau.  

“During times like these, Wisconsin residents have shown their generosity and we hope that during these bitterly cold days they will find it in themselves to do the same once again.” 

“We appreciate the leadership and all the efforts of Governor Walker to ensure that crisis benefits and loan guarantee programs are available as well,” said Swearingen.  “This shortage is impacting residents all across the Midwest and we want to do our part to help those in need navigate this difficult challenge.” 

 Contributions can be made to the Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund by donating online to www.kwwf.org/donate or by calling 1-800-891-9276.
