Natural Gas Access and Expansion Task Force

The Natural Gas Access and Expansion Task Force is chartered for a period of eight months, as of the 11th day of April 2017, to prepare an analytical report that: 1.) Studies current access, expansion and service extension policies for underserved and unserved areas; 2.) Examines the need for access and expansion including case studies and review of the barriers and obstacles to such access; 3.) Recommends potential mechanisms to address the benefits and opportunities for access and expansion and identifies alternative or unconventional approaches to reaching unserved and underserved areas; 4.) Compiles a national "best practices" collection on natural gas access and expansion to underserved and unserved areas. The Task Force shall coordinate with the Committee on Gas to help identify opportunities for engagement at NARUC meetings on this issue and outreach with NARUC-affiliated organizations to collect best practices.
