Amendments to S 2012 – 02-01-16

Yesterday there were 40 more amendments introduced for S 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2015. Of those, one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

SA 3163, Mrs. FISCHER (R,NE), pg S431

This amendment is essential S 2276, the Pipes Act. This is not exactly the same version that was discussed in my earlier post. The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee marked-up that bill back in December and the revised version has not yet been published. The two new rulemakings and the TSA pipeline security report mentioned in that earlier blog are included in the language of this proposed amendment.

Since this amendment is energy related and it did receive bipartisan support in Committee, there is a pretty good chance that this might make it to the short list of amendments that will be considered on the Senate floor. If it does, it will almost certainly be approved
