Pipeline Safety Bill Passes, Merger Announced

The U.S. Senate has approved a bill aimed at improving the safety of the nation's oil and gas pipelines. The legislation emerged after a deadly explosion in San Bruno, Calif., last year. A pipeline merger is on the government radar as well. Regulators will be scrutinizing a plan by pipeline operator Kinder Morgan to buy its rival El Paso for $21 billion.
