Statement on Columbia Gas / NiSource Guilty Plea

WASHINGTON — Representative Seth Moulton (MA-06) made the following statement after prosecutors announced Columbia Gas/NiSource would plead guilty to charges related to the Merrimack Valley gas explosion: 

NiSource/Columbia Gas has finally admitted what we all know: its negligence caused havoc and death in our community. This guilty plea is important, but nobody I represent has confidence in this company's ability to provide service safely. Peace of mind will not return so long as Columbia Gas/NiSource is doing business in the Merrimack Valley. It should be shut down.
