Senators Wyden and Merkley want first responders to have more timely and detailed information about these trains hauling crude and other flammable liquids.

 

Several serious oil train accidents have raised concerns about this increasing mode of transportation.

 

The Senators want the National Transportation Safety Board to expand the emregency order issued in May that requires railroads to notify states of bakken shale oil transported in quantities exceeding one million gallons.

 

Both Wyden and Merkley want more real-time information for first responders, more oil spill planning requirements for railroads and additional training to help assist local emergency crews.
