Bill regarding transport of oil up for public hearing

HB 1449 sponsored by Rep. Jessyn Farrell (D-Seattle) is being heard in the House Environment Committee on Tuesday, February 3 at 1:30 pm. Representatives of several cities will be testifying on the bill and sharing information on emergency preparedness and response that local communities have and what they need.

AWC could use your help. We would like to make sure that any proposal includes resources for local emergency planning and response efforts. Please share with your legislators about work that your community has done to assess risks associated with the transport of oil through your community and what resources you need to adequately protect the public in the case of an incident.
