Let’s Ensure Our Natural Gas Pipelines Are Prepared

Energy Innovation Agenda: Clean Energy Infrastructure
Bill: Promoting Interagency Coordination for Review of Natural Gas Pipelines Act
As an arctic blast spread across the central region of the U.S. this February and left thousands without power or water and enduring below-freezing temperatures, Dr. Burgess called for an honest conversation about the future of energy in America. We have to find the best policies to avoid the suffering caused by this recent winter storm and extreme weather events in the future.
To ensure our energy efforts have the latest technologies, Dr. Burgess introduced the Promoting Interagency Coordination for Review of Natural Gas Pipelines Act to streamline the permitting process. This legislation would centralize the permitting process through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), among other things, to develop best practices concerning pipeline infrastructure.
