Vermont House Bill #67 would create a costly and duplicative recycling program for propane tanks. Energy advocate Matt Cota urged the committee to remove re-fillable tanks from the regulation earlier this year. The  Energy and Environment Committee has amended to only require one pounders (16 ounce cannisters) to create a recylcing program. Sellers of refillable propane tanks greater than one pound are not included in the regulation in the latest draft. It still has a long way to go before it is either passed or shelved, and things could change, but this is a positive development.
