LNG by Rail Final Rule Sent to OMB

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received for review a final rule from the DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) concerning “Liquefied Natural Gas by Rail”. The notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this action was published in October 2019.

With the large number of comments received on the NPRM (see my series of blog posts here) this is a remarkably quick turnaround of this rulemaking, especially considering the COVID-19 operational restrictions under which PHMSA has been working. It will be interesting to see how fast OIRA responds considering the Administration’s obvious desire to move this quickly.
