House Passes HR 2576

As expected this evening the House passed HR 2576, Pipeline Incorporation by Reference Bill. The bill passed by an overwhelmingly bipartisan recorded vote of 405 - 2; only two Democrats dissented. Fifteen days from introduction to passage in House; this demonstrates that the system can work.

It will be interesting to see if anyone in the Senate and more importantly on the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will push this bill as effectively as it was pushed in the House.
