Inslee Calling For Safer Oil Transportation

(Seattle, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee is calling for measures to shore up safety in the transportation of oil through Washington.  The governor says action by both the state and federal governments will be necessary in order for Washington to be better prepared to handle an oil-train explosion or large-scale spills.  Inslee wants more railroad inspectors and replacement of aging oil-transport cars with newer and safer models within the next year.  He's also calling for a 30-mile-per-hour speed limit for trains using outdated cars that transport oil.
