The committee’s activities are subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92–463, 5 U.S.C. App. 1). The committee consists of 15 members—with membership evenly divided among the federal and state government, the regulated industry, and the public.

PHMSA staff may also provide an update on several regulatory and policy initiatives if time allows. III. Preliminary Agenda The agenda will include the committee’s discussion and vote on the proposed rule, ‘‘Pipeline Safety: Safety of Hazardous Liquid Pipelines,’’ published in the Federal Register on October 13, 2015, (80 FR 61610) and on the associated regulatory analysis. The proposed rule includes critical safety improvements for hazardous liquid pipelines and seeks to strengthen the way they are operated, inspected and maintained in the United States. In this proposed rule, PHMSA addresses effective measures that hazardous liquid operators can take to improve the protection of high consequence areas and other vulnerable areas along their hazardous liquid onshore pipelines. In summary, the proposed rule addresses the following areas: • Requirements for gravity lines. • Reporting requirements for gathering lines. • Inspections of pipelines following extreme weather events. • Periodic assessments of pipelines not subject to integrity management. • Pipeline repair criteria. • Expanded use of leak detection systems. • Increased use of in-line inspection tools. • Clarifying other requirements.
