Message from our chair

A Regional Perspective: A unified voice for Midwestern Governors

Welcome to the Midwestern Governors Association website!


As Chair of the MGA for 2014, I look forward to working with my fellow Midwestern governors in strengthening the propane supply chain.

The Midwest, in particular, experienced various propane supply chain challenges over the last few months due to the unusually wet fall and cold winter.  It is my hope to create a propane supply chain working group comprised of states, government agencies, and industry partners to help improve propane operations, enhance consumer awareness, and ease any future propane supply and demand issues.

Despite the cold winter, Midwesterners enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life. Our four distinct seasons, cultural and sporting activities, culinary delights, affordability, natural beauty, and the friendly nature of its residents continue to make the region a go-to location. 

Long-known as the nation’s heartland, the Midwest is quickly positioning itself as America’s Smartland. Investors recognize the Midwest as an entrepreneurial magnet with businesses full of skilled, hardworking, and committed people with a can-do mentality and strong work ethic.

I look forward to working with my fellow governors to ensure our region continues to be the best place to live, work, start a family, get an education, visit, do business and someday even retire.
