Here's a reminder from MN350 about the hearing on the Oil Spill Defense Act
on Wednesday, February 26, at 10 am at the State Office Building, Rm 5.
I'll attend if I can find a ride with someone who'll take me to FUS
afterwards for my chalice circle at 1 pm. A small gaggle of MUUSJA/CCC
folks would be most excellent.

Help pass a strong Oil Spill Defense Act (OSDA) by attending a first
hearing on the bill, and by encouraging local and state governmental
entities to testify before the House Transportation Finance committee.

 The bill is authored by Rep Frank Hornstein and Sen Scott Dibble and was
recently featured in Star Tribune

 The OSDA will be read on the House floor this first week of the 2014
legislative session. It is co-sponsored by MN350, CURE, Sierra Club,
Institute for Agricultural and Trade Policy, Minnesota Conservation
Federation, WaterLegacy and Alliance for Sustainability. The purpose of the
hearing is to receive testimony from local and state governmental entities
(or stakeholders), as well as 1st responders, local emergency response
planning agencies, and impacted citizens.

 The first hearing:

*WEDNESDAY,* February 26, 2014
10:00 AM
*Room:* 5, State Office Building
*Chair:* Rep. Frank Hornstein

*Agenda:* Informational Hearing on Oil Freight and Pipeline Safety

Please attend if you are able.  In addition, DO YOU have contacts with
first responders, local emergency response planning agencies, or citizens
living directly on the oil train rail lines or oil pipelines in Minnesota?
If so, please forward this information on to them, as their presence at the
hearing is encouraged. In addition, State and local agencies such as these
are encouraged to contact Rep. Hornstien so that arrangements can be made
to include their remarks.

Questions about the Oil Spill bill? Please contact MN350 Volunteer Linda
Littrell, litt0021 [at] umn.edu. A second hearing will be in about two weeks.
