Bill Caption

Relating to the installation, maintenance, operation, and relocation of saltwater pipeline facilities.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 2406 would allow the possibility for private saltwater pipelines to be constructed alongside public roads. This option is already available to other utilities.

Analysis: HB 2406 would eliminate a government restriction and open up the pathway for companies to build these pipelines. We support this legislation.
