“While we were hoping to make more significant progress to make pipelines safer, we appreciated the bipartisan efforts of the committee’s leadership,” @BillCaram said. 🧵(1/5)
"@BillCaram, said that while PST appreciates the House committee’s leadership on pipeline safety issues, they were not impressed by the bill’s ability to catalyze meaningful improvements in carbon dioxide and hydrogen safety."
"We hoped that given the strong incentives Congress has enacted leading to unprecedented new development of these pipelines, the committee would have directed PHMSA to develop modernized regulations to keep the public safe," @BillCaram said.

Today, Pipeline Safety Trust Executive Director @BillCaram was in Washington DC to provide public testimony before the Gas Pipeline Advisory Committee (GPAC) that advises the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration ( @PHMSA_DOT )
‼️PRESS RELEASE ‼️
“I think that the list of groups that signed on to this letter provides a really good indication of how widespread the concern over CO2 pipeline safety spans,” PST Policy Manager Amanda McKay said.
“There is no acceptable size of an oil spill into our nation’s waterways, but a spill of the projected magnitude would be devastating,” said Pipeline Safety Trust Executive Director Bill Caram in a statement.
"Caram noted PHMSA’s notice of proposed rulemaking for leak detection and repair.
'I think that is a strong proposed rule, and a lot of that comes from the administration and Tristan prioritizing methane’s role in safety and climate,' Caram said in an interview."
"@BillCaram of @pstrust — a pipeline safety advocacy group — said Brown has done a “fantastic job” guiding @PHMSA_DOT . The agency has released some strong rules and both investigation reports and public engagement has improved under his leadership."
