Waiting on the next leak or explosion

quotes from article:

“It’s been 14 1/2 years since natural gas that had leaked from an underground storage field at Yaggy migrated and caused a series of explosions, destroying half a block of downtown Hutchinson, killing an elderly couple in a mobile home and necessitating a mass evacuation. It took more than a month to burn off the remaining gas.”

 “Legislature passed tough, updated regulations in response, taking responsibility for the safety of Kansans.”

“But a federal court struck down the law in 2010, saying state agencies lacked the authority to regulate underground storage of hazardous gases and liquids.”

 “Kansas Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts tried in 2011 and 2013 to get Congress to act. The senators now plan another effort this month, by tying the legislation to the reauthorization of the Pipeline Safety Act (set to expire Sept. 30) or another must-pass bill.”

The Federal Government, MS state government, FERC, Courts, and gas and pipeline companies have stolen my underground caverns.
