“Environmentalists hope to pack a public meeting on oil-by-rail safety Thursday evening in Olympia. The Department of Ecology is asking for comment about its draft study of spill risks related to the fast-growing practice of shipping oil by rail
Ecologys risk study, which the Legislature authorized and Gov. Jay Inslee accelerated by issuing an executive order, was released Oct. 1 in draft form.”
“The event starts with an open house at 5 p.m. [at the Red Lion hotel] that includes information booths staffed by experts in marine, rail and spill response. A presentation by DOE will start at 6, and the public can comment starting at 6:30,” quoting Brad Shannon in The Olympian.
