OKLAHOMA CITY -- After battling over the state budget and adjourning, state lawmakers still aren't done for the summer. Many of them are still working, looking at 34 interim studies between now and when the next session begins in February.

Those studies include one issue NEWS 9 brought to light.

Last year, a pipeline explosion in Grady County left residents asking who is in charge of regulating pipelines. In some cases, NEWS 9 found out no one regulates the lines.

Now, a senate committee will look at safety issues relating to oil and gas pipelines

See the complete list of issues and studies lawmakers are going over this summer.
