Tell your Senator: Support the Oil Spill Prevention Act

Our state is falling behind in implementing proven prevention and preparedness measures for oil spills, like inspecting oil transfers and marine vessels. At the same time, the oil companies are getting a pass on paying for prevention and protection measures when they bring in oil by pipeline. The Oil Spill Prevention Ac addresses this unfair tax loophole and pays for protections we need to manage the risk of oil.

Email your Senator in the Senate Energy, Environment, and Technology Committee to support the Oil Spill Prevention Act (SB 6269)!

Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ______. 

I am calling to urge you to recognize the value of fully funding environmental programs. Environmental programs are a mere 1.9% of the state operating budget but these programs provide benefits to communities across the state through clean air, clean water, and thriving communities that make Washington a great place to live, work, and play.   

Specifically, I hope you will adopt a final budget that maintains funding for existing environmental programs and provide new funding for:

- Oil spill prevention (HB 1611)

- Reducing toxic pollution (HB 2182)

- The Clean Air Rule

- Puget Sound recovery

Thank you for all of your hard work during the 2017 legislative session and for considering my comments. I look forward to hearing from you, I can be reached at __(Phone Number)__.
