Aboveground Storage Tank Rollback Bill on Senate Committee Agenda
TOMORROW, 3/8

In a last minute push, HB 2598, the bill that would relax inspection requirements for certain oil and gas tanks located closest to our public drinking water intakes, has appeared on the Senate Energy, Industry, and Mining Committee agenda. Read our updated fact sheet on HB 2598.

HB 2598 has already passed the House of Delegates. 

This bill is the latest attempt to rollback water protections under the Aboveground Storage Tank Act. We’ve successfully fended off similar legislation in 2017, 2020, and 2021. We can do it again if you get involved! Please email committee members today! Let them know that inspections keep our water safe.
