MARQUETTE, MI--   The newly created U.P. Energy Task Force will first focus on different methods of providing propane to Upper Peninsula residents. 

That’s according to Liesl Clark, Director of the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy. She says a quarter of Upper Peninsula residents heat their homes with propane, and officials want to know how a disruption in delivery would affect the region.

Clark says that takes into account the possible decommissioning of Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac.
