Senate panel OKs higher safety standards for pipelines
from The Detroit News
The Senate Commerce Committee approved Dec. 9 legislation to improve pipeline safety and oversight that included designating the Great Lakes as a sensitive area, which would make pipelines in the lakes subject to higher safety standards. The legislation also would direct pipeline operators and federal regulators to consider updating response plans for spills affecting waters or shorelines covered by ice — another concern in the Great Lakes region.
