In a story published March 17 in NGI’s Daily Gas Price Index, "Pipeline Safety Bill Advances With Lawsuit Provision, For Now" (see Daily GPIMarch 17), which covered Wednesday's advance of a draft bill to reauthorize the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act, the story and headline both made reference to a “Section 15.” In early March, that provision would have allowed private citizens to sue the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) for perceived “failure to perform and non-discretionary duty…” (see Daily GPI, March 2). But lawmakers subsequently struck that provision and used the same number for a new provision granting the Secretary of the Department of Transportation (DOT) the power to impose emergency orders. Also, comments made by Don Santa, CEO of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America; and Dave McCurdy, CEO of the American Gas Association, were incorrectly correlated to the bill’s advance. The comments actually addressed newly proposed safety regulations by PHMSA. NGI regrets the errors.
