CONGRESS MEMBER BRIAN HIGGINS SENDS LETTER TO HOWARD ELLIOT OF THE U.S. DOT PIPELINE AND HAZARDOUS SAFETY ADMINISTRATION, requesting a 30-day extension of the comment period to the DOT's Draft Final Permit DOT-SP 20534. This special permit proposes to authorize the transportation of liquified natural gas (LNG) by rail tank car.

Higgins states that the requested permit does not provide the public with enough information to consider the risks of transporting hazardous and explosive material through heavily-populated areas along the Floridian Treasure Coast as well as no information about the company the permit is addressed to, not enough test data, considerations of operating conditions that could be placed on the special permit to ensure its safety, and more.
