White House Recognizes Key State Role in Promoting Safe, Efficient Infrastructure: NARUC

WASHINGTON— National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners President Colette D. Honorable of Arkansas issued the following statement regarding the newly released White House strategy on methane emissions:
“We are in the midst of reviewing today’s White House strategy on methane emissions. We appreciate the White House’s acknowledgement of the ongoing efforts at the State level to improve the safe and efficient operation of our nation’s pipeline infrastructure. For NARUC members, safety is and remains Job No. 1, and as this report demonstrates, States have been true leaders. On a personal note, I would like to thank the Administration for their outreach and leadership in initiating roundtable discussions on these issues as they prepared this report. A safe system is a clean and efficient one, and we look forward to working with the White House and all other stakeholders going forward.”
--NARUC President Colette D. Honorable of Arkansas
