Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, both California Democrats, said yesterday that they would soon introduce legislation on pipeline safety. The legislation will be modeled after the proposalsent to Congress by the Department of Transportation yesterday.
In a statement, Boxer said:
The tragic explosion in San Bruno shows why we must increase inspections of our nation’s pipelines. This legislation will put more inspectors on the job protecting our communities while increasing penalties for safety violations.
And Feinstein added:
We are going over the legislation proposed today by Secretary LaHood very carefully, will retain the best parts, and introduce it as quickly as possible.
