HR 2845 Passed in House – Pipeline Safety

Yesterday the House, as expected, passed HR 2845, the Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act of 2011, by a voice vote (page H8339). The ‘debate’ on the bill took just under the allotted 40 minutes; but no one spoke in opposition to the bill.

As I mentioned in an earlier posting, the bill will now go to the Senate where they will most likely substitute the language from S 275 (a very similar bill) and approve that version. The bill will then likely have to go to conference to work out the minor differences. Or, the House could just accept the Senate version.
