House Sends LP Gas Board Bill to Governor

By a unanimous vote of 88-0, the Oklahoma House on Thursday approved a bill making some changes in the requirements of the job of the state’s Liquefied Petroleum  Gas Administrator.

Authored by Rep. John Paul Jordan (R-Yukon) and Sen. Marty Quinn (R-Claremore) Senate Bill 1520 is “modifying job requirements for Liquefied Petroleum gas Administrator” and now requires two years experience as an LPG safety code enforcement officer.

Rep. Jones pointed out in Thursday morning’s debate that the requirements had not been changed since being originally written in 1970.

The Senate had passed the measure March 8 on a 36-0 vote. The measure is on its way to the Governor.
