Oil Train Safety Bill 1449 Passes WA House

Governor Inslee’s oil train bill that addresses the findings from the year long Oil Transport Study passed the WA State House on a 60 to 38 bipartisan vote. Now the bill goes on to the Washington Senate where a powerful conservative senator with his own bill, favored by the railroads and oil industry, will seek to terminate the progressive bill.

Stay tuned for updates on our Facebook page. None of the WA legislative district politician’s, whom we lobbied in Olympia, voted in favor of the bill.
