The House passed an amended version of H.R. 2845, “Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act of 2011” on December 12, 2011 and the next day the Senate approved that bill by unanimous consent. The House bill was largely patterned after an earlier Senate version (S. 275), and reconciled slightly different versions from both the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. A clerical error occurred on the House floor that led to both houses voting on the wrong earlier version of the bill. We understand that this error will be corrected by a Concurrent Resolution. At that point, the correct version of H.R. 2845 will go to President Obama for approval. Click here for the text of the legislation that will be sent to the President.
