President Obama: Regulate Dangerous Oil by Rail!
Americans deserve regulations that put our safety first and that of our towns, not the profits of big oil. Protect communities from dangerous oil by rail by improving tank cars, regulating speed limits, limiting flammable materials, improving emergency notification systems and letting communities say no to oil trains going through their communities.
Why is this important?
25 million Americans are in danger from exploding oil trains.
Last month — after a record year of unsafe oil trains derailing, spilling, and exploding across the country — President Obama proposed new regulations for unsafe tank cars. But shockingly, these new rules actually protect industry profits while sacrificing public safety and the health of our air and water.
