Program A: Administrative

Program Authorization:R.S. Title 40, Chapter 10, Part 1; R.S. Tile 3, Chapter 10, Part II

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administrative Program for the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Commission is to promulgate and enforce rules that will allow for the safest possible distribution, handling and usage of liquefied petroleum gases and anhydrous ammonia, necessary for the protection, safety and security of the public, through inspections of storage facilities, equipment, and examination of personnel engaged in the industry.

The goals of the Administrative Program for the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Commission are:

  1. Reduce loss of life and property through diligent enforcement of Louisiana law and rules and regulations and national standards as adopted by the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Commission.
  2. Reduce burdensome requirements whenever practical without sacrificing safety.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indictors are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

This agency is funded with Fees and Self-generated Revenue and a Statutory dedication from the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Rainy Day Fund. (Per R.S. 39:32B.(8), see table below for a listing of expenditures out of each Statutory Dedication Fund.) Both are derived from the sale of various licenses and permits to participate in the liquefied petroleum gas and anhydrous ammonia industry.
