Current Bill Summary

SB 450 - Current law sets forth maximum civil penalties for any corporation, person, public utility, or municipality that owns any gas plant that violates any law, order, decision, decree, rule, direction, demand, or requirement of the Public Service Commission relating to federally mandated natural gas safety standards.

This act repeals such penalties and instead states that violations of such standards shall be subject to a penalty not to exceed an amount as determined by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation of the United States pursuant to federal regulations.

This act is identical to SB 953 (2022), SB 172 (2021) and HB 1054 (2021), and substantially similar to SB 827 (2020), SB 169 (2019), HB 589 (2019), SB 815 (2018), and SB 543 (2017).
