WASHINGTON (November 18, 2016) — The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), meeting this month in Naples, Fla., approved a $40.7 million budget for 2017 that will include the consumer education campaign, safety and training programs, the Partnership with States program, and ongoing development of propane-fueled products.

The current assessment rate of $0.0045 per gallon of odorized propane, which took effect Nov. 1, is expected to generate revenues of $38.9 million. The budget includes $29.5 million for program activities.
