Your Calls Needed by Monday! Zombie Aboveground Storage Tank Act on House Energy Agenda on Tuesday
Remember the Freedom Industries disaster? The bill to exempt oil and gas tanks is back (AKA The Aboveground Storage Tank Act) and is on the House Energy Committee's agenda for this Tuesday, February 23. This year's bill, HB 2598, is similar to last year's rollback attempt - which you defeated! It would exempt certain oil and gas tanks that are closest to our public drinking water intakes. If this bill passes, over 1,000 tanks in 27 counties would become unregulated. View fact sheets from West Virginia Rivers Coalition to learn more. More
