 ignition. Such department's criteria shall be no less  restrictive  than
 existing federal regulations. Such department shall within one year from

 forms and procedures to be followed, which shall include notice  to  all
 affected municipal police and fire departments, for the certification of
 routes  to be used for the safe intrastate transportation of such lique-
 fied natural and petroleum gas] SHALL COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL
 AND STATE LAWS, RULES AND REGULATIONS AND BE CONDUCTED BY CARRIERS  WITH
 A  HAZARDOUS MATERIALS SAFETY PERMIT ISSUED BY THE FEDERAL MOTOR CARRIER
