Oregon Senators Applaud Federal Government's Plans to Improve Regulations on Oil Trains


Senators Merkley and Wyden have been calling for better notification to state and local first responders of not only Bakken crude, but all flammable substances being transported by rail.

 

The proposed new regulations would extend those precautions to all trains carrying 20 or more tank carloads of either crude or ethanol.

 

Senator Wyden urges the Department of Transportation to notify first responders not just about  Bakken oil being transported, but about all high hazard flammable trains.
