Summary: HB 2532 would set price ranges for propane companies that provide services to residential areas. Additionally, HB 2532 would require the companies to report more information the Railroad Commission concerning their supply of propane.
Analysis: HB 2532 would violate free market principles by setting a price range that companies are allowed to charge. However, in these residential areas, there already exists a monopoly that prevents individuals from choosing their own utility provider. This bill would protect personal property rights by ensuring that these companies do not abuse their monopolies. HB 2532 would also represent an increasing government regulation.
