PUC Adopts Notice of Pipeline Rulemaking
The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission unanimously adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding regulations for the pipeline transportation of petroleum products and hazardous liquids in intrastate commerce and is seeking public comment on the rulemaking. Comments will be accepted for 60 days from the date the notice is published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin through the commission’s efiling system referencing Docket No. L-2019-3010267.
The rulemaking is PUC’s latest step in a comprehensive process to explore and address pipeline safety regulations in Pennsylvania. The proposed rulemaking initiated today follows the PUC review and analysis of more than 90 comments from community advocates and citizens’ organizations, local governments, industry affiliates, members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly, and concerned citizens.
