ACT: A Bold Idea to Address Climate Crisis, Oil Train Risks
This week, Oregon legislators introduced a compelling new bill, House Bill 4105, that would tackle some of the biggest threats from new fossil fuel polluters. HB 4105 would prohibit the construction of new, major fossil fuel polluting projects on Oregon’s state lands, and it would implement new safety limits on dangerous oil trains.
Please contact your representative today and urge them to support HB 4105. Join us on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at 1 p.m. at the Oregon State Capitol, Hearing Room D, to show support for this important bill.
HB 4105 would accomplish two major goals:
- Steer Oregon away from using state-owned lands for major new fossil fuel developments like oil and fracked gas terminals and pipelines.
- Establish the same standard that Washington state uses to limit the vapor pressure of oil delivered to facilities in Oregon.
HB 4105 is a breath of fresh air: a meaningful opportunity to reduce oil train safety risks and take a stand on climate change.
See you in the Capitol!
