On March 13, 2019, the Washington State House of Representatives, despite our expressed opposition and testimony, passed the bill listed above sending it to the Senate.
It's now up to us, our members and partners, to contact, educate, and encourage our Senators to not pass HB 1841.
We encourage a NO Vote!
We are asking you, your friends, and colleagues to contact them via an email and request them to vote in opposition to HB 1841 should it come up for a vote. It does not address safety issues and hurts the reliable and efficient rail system our agricultural industry uses and relies upon for its fertilizer products.
The bill is currently in Senate Labor & Commerce Committee, so you should contact the committee members and key legislators identified below. If the bill passes out of the Labor & Commerce Committee, we will contact you again to request additional outreach as the bill moves through the process.
