2014 House Bill 5274: Preempt locals from restricting CO2 pipelines

Public Act 85 of 2014

Introduced by Rep. Peter Pettalia (R) on January 30, 2014 To expand the law that gives the state Public Service Commission authority to regulate oil and gas pipelines so it also applies to pipelines carrying carbon dioxide used in hydrocarbon “enhanced recovery” operations. This law preempts local governments from restricting pipelines in their jurisdiction. This is related to House Bill 4885, which would cut the tax on oil and gas extracted using enhanced recovery.   Official Text and Analysis.
