    number of catastrophic failures that have resulted in numerous deaths including those of at least three children In fact Secretary LaHood recently noted that fatal incidents increased from nine in 2008 to 22 in 2010 These accidents also have injured many individuals destroyed dozens of homes polluted and forced the closure of major waterways and resulted in millions of dollars in damage to private property public lands and local economies After such a period of disastrous pipeline failures as well as the unprecedented environmental and economic damages caused by the BP Deepwater Horizon spill which has resulted in some key lessons learned we believe Congress should be moving legislation that ensures polluters are held accountable by significantly increasing penalties and liability for bad operators reforms and significantly increases resources for the agency overseeing pipeline safety and provides the Secretary with authority to waive the onerous cost benefit analysis requirements of current law requires inspection of more pipeline mileage more frequently with the best available technology to identify material defects and ensure maintenance has been adequate mandates installation of state of the art leak detection systems and that operators report leaks within one hour of discovery makes available to US taxpayers landowners and emergency responders more information about individual pipelines and their safety both past and present requires that the public be able to access free of charge the full text of industry standards incorporated by reference into federal rulemakings and affirmatively closes significant gaps in our nation s pipeline safety program which result in certain types of pipelines being under regulated or even completely unregulated under federal law The manager s amendment to S 275 takes some modest steps in the right direction in the areas highlighted above The legislation among other things increases staffing for DOT s pipeline program raises the cap on penalties for violations begins to close the loopholes allowing certain pipelines to remain unregulated and allowing spikes in operating pressure to go unreported requires development of a report to Congress analyzing whether current pipeline regulations are sufficient for transportation of Canadian tar sands and increases the amount available for pipeline safety information grants Unfortunately the manager s amendment also weakens or deletes some laudable provisions in S 275 as introduced including removing language mandating disclosure of companies spill response plans and lowering the standard for regulating gathering lines As S 275 moves forward through the legislative process we would like to see the stronger language from the introduced bill restored At a minimum there are a few provisions in the bill that we believe must be modified prior to passage in order for us to continue to support the legislation First language on page 22 line 12 appears to allow the Secretary to review a waiver granted to a pipeline operator only after a five year period we believe that the language must be amended to direct the Secretary to review an individual waiver at least once every 5 years Second while we are pleased that
