Pipeline Regulations

On June 8th, 2010, my husband and dad were killed in the Darrouzett pipeline explosion. During their investigation, NTSB found that there was no call to 811 prior digging nor did the company owning the pipeline mark it as required by federal law. It is our mission to see that stricter regulations and heavier fines are placed on companies that do not follow the laws put into place in order to save the lives of the men who work on and around these lines. These laws need to be enforced rather than just put into place.  These companies and large corporations are not being held accountable for their part in preventable safety hazards and rather than just paying fines, some other sort of punishment needs to be enforce.  "What's your loved one's life worth?"
