Pipeline initiative expected this week

The Hill's Keith Laing reports:

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will begin the week with a trip Monday to Allentown, Pa., when department officials say he will shine a light on pipeline safety.

LaHood will take a tour of the site of a February explosion that resulted in five deaths and will make what officials are calling a “major announcement” about safety initiatives from the Obama administration.
