ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a pipeline safety reform bill in which integrity management programs are required to be expanded in 2010 in the U.S. The bill is prompted by the explosion of PG&E Corp.'s transmission pipeline, Enbridge oil spill, and gas distribution line explosions. There is also a possibility that the cap on civil penalties and the number of Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) inspectors will be increased.
