WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken released a report that shows a county by county breakdown of funding levels for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) in 2012.  In the wake of dangerously low temperatures in recent weeks, the senators say they will continue to push for an increase in funding levels for the program.  Klobuchar says no one should have to chose between heating their homes or putting food on the table.  The LIHEAP program has been cut by more than 30 percent in recent years.  The report shows St. Louis County with 11.7 million dollars in program funding last year.
