House committee to review AIR Survey Act

from NSPS

This week the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the U.S. House of Representatives will hold a markup hearing on infrastructure-related legislation such as H.R. 3021, the "Aerial Infrastructure Route (AIR) Survey Act of 2015" introduced last year by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS). Earlier this month, the Subcommittee on Energy and Power held a hearing on the bill. The bill amends the Natural Gas Act to allow the use of aerial survey data for certain applications. Based on an analysis by the Committee, specifically, the legislation includes the following provisions: Section 1: This section provides the short title of the “Aerial Infrastructure Route Survey Act of 2015” or the “AIR Survey Act of 2015.” Section 2: Section 2 amends section 7 of the existing gas law to clarify that data collected by aerial survey is acceptable for the purposes of (1) completing any pre-filing process established to facilitate the formal application process for obtaining a certificate of public convenience and necessity for a natural gas transportation facility, or (2) an application associated with a Federal authorization concerning a certificate application. The section also provides the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) with the discretion to require, as a condition of approval, that data gathered by aerial survey be verified through the use of ground survey data before construction or extension of proposed facilities. more
