PG&E to turn over documents in pipeline blast

Submitted By AP Wire Service

SAN FRANCISCO (AP), Oct 15 - Pacific Gas & Electric Co. says it will turn over thousand of pages of internal documents related to the deadly gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno to a state lawmaker after all.

After previously refusing to turn over the documents because of the ongoing federal investigation, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said Friday that state Sen. Dean Florez will receive the thousands of pages of inspection reports and memos related to the company's gas pipeline maintenance.

PG&E for weeks had refused Florez' request, saying the National Transportation Safety Board's inquiry blocked them from providing the documents.

But an NTSB lawyer says there is no such restriction, and that PG&E was free to turn over the information.

Molica says PG&E is not sure it can make the thousands of copies by Tuesday's hearing on the explosion by a state Senate committee.
