|Description||This four-page focus sheet describes implementation of the 2018 Strengthening Oil Transportation Safety Act, which requires the Department of Ecology to focus on oils that may submerge or sink in water and to protect the Salish Sea from oil spills by promoting the safety of marine transportation. The legislation also applies the barrel tax to oil moved by pipelines. The bill specifically directs Ecology’s Spills Program to undertake several policy initiatives.|
