10 JUNE 2016 | FUEL OIL NEWS | www.fueloilnews.com STATE BY STATE NEWS Massachusetts— Elisabeth Treseder is Named Associate Director Of API's Massachusetts Petroleum Council The Massachusetts Petroleum Council, a division of API, named Elisabeth Treseder associate director. Treseder previously served as policy advisor in the Midstream Department of API in Washington, D.C. Treseder joined API in 2013. While in the Washington office, she oversaw surface transportation and refining issues, among others. Prior to joining API, Treseder received her master's degree in Energy Policy and International Business Relations at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. She received her bachelor's degree from Duke University in Durham, N.C. She will be working to aggressively expand the natural gas infrastructure in the region, which is opposed by the heating oil and propane sectors that API is said to represent. "In 2015, New England residents paid on average 53% more for their electricity than the rest of the nation—in large part due to inadequate energy infrastructure," said Treseder. "New England needs investment in infrastructure to gain the full ben- efits of this opportunity." New Hampshire—Bills on Pre-buy Contracts, Sulfur Reduction, Expected to Be Signed into Law in N.H. Two pieces of legislation of importance to the Oil Heat Council of New Hampshire, HB1195 and SB309, have passed both the Senate and House and are on their way to the office of Gov. Maggie Hassan, reported Robert J. Sculley, executive director of the Council, based in Concord, N.H. "I expect the Governor to sign both HB1195 and SB309," Sculley said. HB1195 deals with adjustments the Council requested on pre-buy contracts, and, if signed, would go into effect sometime this summer, Sculley said. SB309 mandates a reduction in sulfur content to 15ppm by July 1, 2018. l F O N
