Gas pipeline standards are clearly the purview of state authority. Each state should be able to set standards appropriate to its local needs. It's not like we have a network of pipelines crisscrossing 49 states. Also, individual states should be able to adopt the metric system if they so choose.
I disagree with that, as the minimum standard for this type of piping is API-1104, and needs to be enforced at ALL levels. I have inspected a lot of pipe to that standard, and more sringent ones as well.

Engineers should set standards... Period.
