(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington Governor Jay Inslee says current railroad safety standards don't go far enough to protect communities from oil-train derailments.  The governor is requesting that federal regulators issue an emergency order to require railroads that haul Bakken oil send safety inspectors to walk the rail lines at least 24 hours before transporting the volatile crude.  Currently, the federal rail administration requires two mechanical inspections per week, rather than requiring that inspectors physically walk the rail looking for problems.  "The Columbian" quotes Inslee as saying tracks should be inspected at least once per day.
