Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     49-34B-26.   Prohibition against disposing of, destroying or altering pipeline involved in emergency release--Violation as felony. After an emergency release from a pipeline has occurred, no pipeline operator, or its employee or agent, may dispose of, destroy, or alter the part of a pipeline that was involved in the emergency release until approval is granted by the commission. This section does not prevent an operator from taking appropriate action to limit or prevent the further release of gas. The authority of the commission to grant approval may not be delegated.
     This section may not be construed to prevent the excavation and removal from the ground of a pipeline or part of a pipeline if the pipeline is not intentionally altered in a manner that prevents or hinders a determination of the cause of the emergency release. A person who knowingly violates the provisions of this section, or who denies the commission access to the pipeline for the purposes of inspection, is guilty of a Class 5 felony.
