Governor Kitzhaber Calls for Several Measures to Improve Oil Train Safety


Kitzhaber wants to increase state rail inspectors, wants more funding for training and wants improved reporting and transparency on crude oil and emergency response resources.

 

The Governor asked state agencies to review oil train safety following the increase of crude oil traveling from the Bakken region of North Dakota through Oregon.

 

This announcement comes two days after the federal government released a set of nationwide rules for tougher tank car standards and lower speeds for trains carrying crude oil.
