About the study and hearings
Governor Inslee is doing a study to assess the risks of oil transportation in Washington, and is giving the public a chance to comment. This is a critical opportunity to voice your concerns about the combined impact of oil and coal trains on our communities.

Help ensure that the study addresses the whole picture, such as risks and threats to rail communities, terminal communities, our economy, public safety, and our waterways like the Puget Sound, Grays Harbor, the Columbia River, and the Spokane River.

Your participation can inform how the state will respond to this very important issue. Don't miss this incredibly important opportunity to speak up.

Join us, and please RSVP!
