PA State Senate Committee Holds Hearing on Allentown Natural Gas Explosion This MorningMar 15th, 2011 | By admin | Category: Natural Gas Explosions, Regulation
Even though the National Transportation Safety Board has decided not to investigate the recent natural gas explosion that killed five people, including a 16-year-old girl and her baby, Pennsylvania state authorities are moving ahead with their own hearing this morning.
Indeed, the Pennsylvania State Senate’s Consumer Protection and State Licensure Committee is holding a hearing on the Allentown explosion right now – it started this morning at 10 a.m. – at Symphony Hall in Allentown.
Six people have died in natural gas explosions in Pennsylvania since the beginning of 2011, and it’s only March 15.
