PHMSA Cites Progress in Implementing Reauthorization of Pipeline Safety Laws
January 4, 2013
Yesterday, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) released an update on its progress in implementing the requirements of the Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act, the most recent reauthorization of the federal pipeline safety laws. President Obama signed that legislation one year ago, and PHMSA has since taken a number of actions to comply with its provisions, including initiating reforms to its administrative enforcement process, completing several congressionally-mandated studies, and issuing advisory bulletins on safety-related issues.
