CA to fine PG&E $2.25B for pipeline failure

The state of California is set to fine Pacific Gas and Electric Company $2.25 billion for the deadly San Bruno, California, pipeline rupture in September 2010.

The Safety and Enforcement Division of the California Public Utilities Commission recommended the penalty for three cases arising from the Sept. 9, 2010, incident, which killed eight people and destroyed dozens of homes.

    I would agree, there needs to be a fine paid by PG&E, it is unacceptable.
