Bulletin, June 2021
In 2019 the Oregon legislature adopted HB 2209. The bill concerns contingency planning for railroad transportation of oil. Railroads are required to conduct emergency contingency planning and submit emergency plans to DEQ. DEQ is also required to adopt rules about this type of planning. The EQC adopted these contingency planning rules.
DEQ has appointed an advisory committee to assist in drafting the proposed rules. The committee provided technical input and reviewed the proposed rules' estimated fiscal impact.
