More evidence of PG&E cost-cutting prior to San Bruno explosion

More evidence of PG&E cost-cutting prior to San Bruno explosion By Kevin Kearney 17 Sep 2010 PG&E, the California utility that operates the pipeline that exploded in San Bruno last week, killing at least seven people, failed to perform a scheduled replacement on a near-by pipe, according to a consumer advocacy group.
