Making the Transport of Crude Oil Safer in NYS

Under the leadership of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, New York has become the most aggressive state in the nation in pursuing action that will help to ensure the public and the environment are protected from the risks associated with the federally regulated transport of crude oil. In addition, given the rash of crude oil derailments and explosions across North America since 2013, New York State has taken several actions to prevent crude oil derailments and to ensure the state is as prepared as possible to respond to crude oil accidents and spills.
