Stand up to big oil in Washington State

It's a critical time in Olympia – and we need your help. Governor Inslee and his legislative allies have brought forward legislation that will take real steps to protect our communities from oil trains and oil spills. It’s one of our top priorities – Oil Transportation Safety Now.

Now is the time to make sure lawmakers know that you support real action on this important issue. Please contact your legislator asking them to support this bill!
We need our state legislators to take bold action on the risks we are facing right now, with oil transport endangering our communities and waterways—and the Governor has responded with a strong legislative package.  A fact sheet on Governor’s request legislation is here.

If you can, please attend a committee hearing tomorrow, Tuesday, February 3rd @ 1:30 pm in Olympia to show your support for the Oil Transportation Safety Act, HB 1449!

We want to FILL the hearing room with people. We have done this before, and we need to do it again!

Please RSVP today to attend the hearing.

If you can’t make it, please contact your legislator asking them to support this bill.
Also, please spread the word on Facebook!
