Senator Boxer: Improving Pipeline Safety
Tuesday, October 4, 2011
Today Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and I urged Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) to stop blocking legislation to improve the safety of underground pipelines like the one that exploded last year in San Bruno, taking the lives of eight people.

As the residents of San Bruno continue to rebuild and recover from the pipeline disaster, be assured that I will keep working to protect our communities by increasing pipeline inspections while setting tougher penalties for safety violations.
