Tracking Water Policy
West Virginia Rivers Coalition
This week we expect to see a bill introduced that would rollback portions of the Aboveground Storage Tank Act (ASTA). Members of both the WV House and Senate have publicly spoken about their support and intention to weaken portions of the Aboveground Storage Tank Act related to oil and gas. Since the Act’s passage in 2014, the oil and gas industry has lobbied for an industry-wide exemption under the rule. We’ll be following bills related weakening of the ASTA closely throughout the session.
