From the opening statement of Torbert H.

[...] The Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce has a long history of interest in the subject of natural gas pipeline safety, which was enhanced some 17 years ago by the introduction at that time by Congressman John Heselton, of Massachusetts, of a bill to give the Commission authority in this field. [...] It is our purpose to develop during the course of the hearings the manner in which the need for Federal regulation in this field has accentuated as well as to consider the areas wherein Federal specifications and Federal policing of the specifications arrived at may be required." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Alan S. Boyd, Lee White, John M. Murphy, Robert Price, Edwin W. Edwards, Kenneth C. Vaughan, J.
