"This is the May 3, 2017 hearing on 'Legislation Addressing Pipeline and Hydropower Infrastructure Modernization' held before the Subcommittee on Energy, Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Pete Olson: 'Today the subcommittee will begin to review bills to modernize pipeline and hydropower infrastructure. We have 10 bills before us. Some have already been introduced while others are in discussion forum, but we already have an extensive record on these issues that these bills address. We begin this Congress by picking up where we left off last year, with hearings on the challenges we face to expand hydro and pipeline infrastructure. We have heard from job creators, contractors, labor, Tribal interests, consumers, and private citizens. Then we will hear from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, otherwise known as FERC, the lead agency for these reviews. As we move forward, we will continue to work with the States and other Federal agencies that have a role to ensure that we balance the need to modernize our infrastructure with the important safety, environmental, and consumer protections. We will also hear from stakeholders, both industry and citizen groups. I look forward to their input."
