Sacramento – Today, Assemblymember Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento), released the following statement on the federal lawsuit, filed yesterday, by the Union Pacific Railroad, BNSF Railway Company and the Association of American Railroads challenging that California’s new oil spill prevention and response law (SB 861) is pre-empted by federal law:
“I am disappointed at the challenge to SB 861 made by the Railroads. The state Oil Spill Prevention and Response Program (OSPR) has provided important protections for our coastal marine waterways for over two decades, under authority delegated to the state by federal law and regulation. I voted to expand the program to our inland waterways in order to provide the same protection to California streams and rivers which are crisscrossed with pipelines and rail lines carrying vast quantities of crude oil.
