Let Your Voice Be Heard: Exemptions in One Call Laws Under Federal Scrutiny.

PHMSA will hold a public forum on March 14 to discuss exemptions in one call laws, potential impact on grants to states and a report to Congress on the issue.
Feb. 5, 2013 - PRLog -- State one-call program laws are going to be on the agenda at the PHMSA forum that will take place at the same time as the 2013 CGA 811 Conference & Expo in West Palm Beach, Florida. PHMSA has decided to hold their meeting on March 14 at the Convention Center because they want to maximize the opportunity for damage prevention stakeholders to attend without additional travel arrangements.

Major discussion points include:

PHMSA law requirements
PHMSA activities to date
Exemptions in states
Impact of exemptions to states, one call centers, and excavators
Impact of exemptions to local governments, agriculture, public, & railroad
Impact of exemptions to pipeline operators

CGA Conference registration is not required to attend the PHMSA forum. There is no cost to attend the forum, but potential attendees must register through a separate PHMSA web site.  More information can be found at: https://primis.phmsa.dot.gov/meetings/MtgHome.mtg?mtg=85&... or http://www.cgaconference.com/special_events.php.

Even if people are already signed up for the CGA Conference, they must still register for the PHMSA forum in order to participate.  In order to attend some of the 60+ sessions at the 811 CGA Conference & Expo, a separate registration is required at:
http://www.cgaconference.com/conference_sessions.php. There is still time to register for both the PHMSA forum and the conference. A lot of valuable information is going to be shared in West Palm Beach, so damage prevention stakeholders should be aware of this great opportunity.
