News from the local tar sands front. I can't make it, but it would be good
if someone from EcoMinds/CCC were present.

I'm proud to announce - .

The "Oil Spill Defense Act " Press Conference will be this Wednesday
(tomorrow) at 2 PM at the intersection of Everett Court and Tanter, near
the intersection of Energy Park Drive and Raymond in St Paul.  If you are
able to attend, park on Everett Court (one block east of Raymond) on the
south of Energy Park Drive and walk to the end of the block - Tanter.  The
press conference will be hosted by Representative Frank Hornstein and
Senator Scott Dibble, with MN350's lawyer on the contested hearing case,
Paul Blackburn, and United Transportation' s Union's Representative Phillip
Qualy speaking as well.

The legislation protects Minnesotans and Minnesota's water and land by 1)
requiring real state oversight of oil and hazardous substance spill
response planning and 2) increasing resources for state and local first
responders. Current state law adopts weak federal standards and provides no
resources for state and local responders, with the result that taxpayers
currently foot the bill for state and local spill response planning.

Hope to see you there! But if you are not able to attend, hopefully you'll
see something in the news!
