Public & Governmental Affairs
It is important that the propane gas industry has an effective voice in government. Members of Congress and their staffs are regularly shaping policies that could affect every aspect of the industry—from marketers and producers to transporters and manufacturers. NPGA protects the industry’s interests by utilizing the expertise of its Public & Governmental Affairs team, led by Senior Vice President Philip Squair. This group enables NPGA to position the industry on a competitive footing, advocating for favorable policies and combating troublesome ones. Recently, NPGA’s Public & Governmental Affairs team has showcased its effectiveness through the enactment of several industry-specific policies. NPGA continues to build on these successes with additional outreach and advocacy.
Propane Days is the premier advocacy event for the U.S. propane industry. Hundreds of industry members travel to Washington, DC for two days of issue briefings, guest speakers, and meetings with legislators and their staffs. Since 2005, Propane Days has served as the propane industry’s most important legislative outreach program. The event has broken attendance records for three straight years, growing to more than 400 participants last year representing 44 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada.This is one of the most effective ways for our industry to advance its public policy agenda in our nation’s capital.
NPGA is not just involved in Washington, D.C. We are also in the many U.S. state capitals, lobbying for our members.
