Texas Final Rule: Hazardous Liquid Pipelines Public Education and Liaison

The Texas Railroad Commission has also approved a final rule concerning Hazardous Liquids and Carbon Dioxide Pipelines Public Education and Liaison (16 TAC §8.310). This rule contains identical requirements concerning public liaison with “fire, police, and other appropriate public emergency response officials” as contained in the recent Gas Pipeline regulation (see previous article in this newsletter). However, the portions in the original 16 TAC §8.310 concerning public schools were eliminated, and have been re-proposed in a separate rule numbered 16 TAC §8.315. See elsewhere in this newsletter for additional information on this proposed rule.
