Legislators asked to consider safety of pipelines

Two legislative committee hearings in July focused on pipeline safety in Kentucky.

On July 16, KFTC member Bob Pekny joined Rep. David Floyd to talk about the Pipeline Safety Bill that was introduced in the 2015 legislative session.

“Kentucky is crisscrossed with pipelines of various sorts, most of them related to energy” Rep. Floyd told the Interim Joint Committee on Economic Development and Tourism. “We believe an increase in precautions would be wise.”

Cleaning up the coal industry's legacy pollution seems a better idea than letting them create more of it. Community and economic development projects that could be funded through the Power+ Initiative would extend the benefits of the environmental cleanup. It makes good sense.
