Minnesota oil train safety legislation moving forward

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- If there's an oil spill, a railroad or pipeline company would have to provide a thousand-foot containment boom and staff on-site within two hours, and all necessary resources within two-and-a-half days.

That under an oil spill preparedness bill moving forward in the Minnesota Senate.

The bill's Senate sponsor, Owatonna Democrat Vicki Jensen, argues to protect public safety, emergency response plans must be consistent for all railroads and pipelines in Minnesota.
