        Introduced by M. of A. PAULIN, DINOWITZ, GALEF, OTIS, SEAWRIGHT, COLTON,
          D'URSO,  ORTIZ, BARRON, RODRIGUEZ, DE LA ROSA -- Multi-Sponsored by --
          M. of A.  COOK, NIOU -- read once and referred  to  the  Committee  on
          Corporations, Authorities and Commissions

        AN ACT to amend the public service law, in relation to filing gas safety
          reports
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. The public service law is amended by adding a  new  section
     2  66-p to read as follows:
     3    §  66-p.  Gas  safety reports. 1. On or before March fifteenth of each
     4  year, each gas corporation shall file with the department a  gas  safety
     5  report.  The  department  shall  review  the reports to monitor each gas
     6  corporation's pipeline replacement projects  and  all  other  activities
     7  related to providing safe and reliable gas service in order to determine
     8  whether  the  projects  or  activities are being carried out in a manner
     9  consistent with this chapter, the commission's  rules,  regulations  and
    10  orders,  and  any  practice  the department has deemed necessary for the
    11  provision of safe and reliable service, and to track how each gas corpo-
    12  ration is spending any funds allocated for pipeline replacement projects
    13  and all other activities related to  providing  safe  and  reliable  gas
    14  service.
    15    2.  The  gas  safety  report  provided  for in subdivision one of this
    16  section shall include a thorough  description  and  explanation  of  the
    17  strategic planning and decision-making methodology used to determine and
    18  prioritize  pipeline  replacement  projects, a description of the corpo-
    19  ration's operation and maintenance activities related to gas  safety,  a
    20  description  of  the  corporation's inspections of its intrastate trans-
    21  mission and distribution lines, and any other information the department
    22  may require. If there has been no substantial change  in  a  gas  corpo-
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD00764-01-9

        A. 714                              2
 
     1  ration's  safety  report since the gas safety report most recently filed
     2  with the department, the corporation, with consent  of  the  department,
     3  may file an updated version of such report.
     4    2-a. A gas corporation shall also include with its gas safety report a
     5  list  of  pipeline  replacement  projects completed by a gas corporation
     6  within the last year; such  list  shall  indicate  which  projects  were
     7  completed  with  a  gas  corporation's  own  employees  and  which  were
     8  completed by contractors. The commission may also  order  a  gas  corpo-
     9  ration to submit an independent cost benefit analysis which examines the
    10  gas corporation's use of its own employees and its use of contractors to
    11  complete pipeline replacement projects.
    12    3.  If  the  department determines that there is a deficiency in a gas
    13  corporation's prioritization or administration of its pipeline  replace-
    14  ment  projects  or  operation  and maintenance activities related to gas
    15  safety, the department shall notify the commission at the next scheduled
    16  public session and shall provide a brief description of  the  facts  and
    17  nature  of  the deficiency. The commission may order reasonable improve-
    18  ments that will best promote the public interest,  preserve  the  public
    19  health  and protect those using gas pursuant to those powers provided to
    20  the commission as provided in this chapter, including but not limited to
    21  those in section sixty-six of this article.
    22    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
