From the Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of H.R. 3699, the 'Pipeline Security Act,' is to codify the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) responsibility related to securing pipelines against cybersecurity threats, acts of terrorism, and other nefarious acts that jeopardize the physical security or cybersecurity of pipelines. The bill also sets requirements for a pipeline security section within TSA to help carry out this mission. Under this bill, TSA's pipeline security section must develop guidelines for pipeline security and conduct inspections of pipelines and pipeline facilities. In addition, the bill requires TSA and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to coordinate and develop a personnel strategy for the staffing of the pipeline security section. Finally, the bill requires the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct a review of the implementation of this Act."
