SB 169 - 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 civil penalty not to exceed an amount as determined by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation pursuant to federal regulations.

This act is identical to HB 589 (2019), SB 815 (2018), SB 543 (2017), SB 943 (2016), and HB 2508 (2016).
