Week Ahead: House to Examine Pipeline Safety
from The Hill
Lawmakers plan to take a comprehensive look at how federal pipeline safety regulators are implementing a 2011 overhaul of safety rules. The House Energy and Commerce Committee complains that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has yet to implement many of the major reforms in the law. The hearing comes two months after a major pipeline breach that spilled thousands of gallons of oil into the Pacific Ocean and onto beaches in Santa Barbara County, California.
