ACTION ALERT: tell your legislators to support two important bills.
UPDATE: Good news! Two bills to improve health and environmental conditions related to the oil tanks got strong support in the Maine Legislature's Environment and Natural Resources Committee. Now they go to the full legislature for approval.
LD 1915 would require better monitoring and emissions capturing technology at oil tank facilities.
LD 2033 would require proper closure and cleanup of storage facilities when they are no longer in use.
Contact your legislators today and tell them to vote YES on LDs 1915 and 2033! Look up their contact info here>>
