Iowa governor lifts propane regulations during deep freeze

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is temporarily easing some regulations on propane delivery as cold weather drives demand up.

Reynolds signed a proclamation Friday to suspend some restrictions on the hours crews and drivers can work delivering propane. A release from the governor's office says extreme weather conditions have contributed to low supplies of propane.

The proclamation expires Wednesday.
