The Department's proposed rule concerns a DOT plan to measure the effectiveness of drug testing programs in all DOT-regulated modes of transportation, including pipeline, The present RSPA notice proposes a rule that is necessary to carry out the DOT plan with respect to pipeline operators. Together. the two proposed rules would require pipeline operators who are subject to drug and alcohol testing requirements to report annually to RSPA certain information about their drug and alcohol testing programs. RSPA would use the data to analyze its current approach to deterring and detecting illegal drug and alcohol misuse use in the pipeline Industry, and, as appropriate, plan a more efficient and effective approach.
