"States Push For Stronger Oil Train Limits"

"Several state attorneys general are asking federal regulators to strengthen rules on trains transporting crude oil.

The six attorneys general, led by New York’s Eric Schneiderman, filed comments with regulators Monday insisting the government set a more stringent limit on the volatility of oil that trains are allowed to transport.

The filing with the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) says the government should not allow trains to transport oil with a vapor pressure of 9 pounds per square inch or higher."
