Councilman Snyder testifies on Senate oil train bill

Yesterday, Councilman Jon Snyder was in Olympia and testified on Senate Bill 5057; concerning the shipment of oil via rail. While the bill does more than current state law, Councilman Snyder points out that it ignores pipelines altogether and that the small tax increase on tank cars does not reflect the potential costs of derailment. Listen to his testimony above.
