(WASHINGTON)— “Exasperated” by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board’s actions, Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, today called on the federal safety agency to quickly issue its report on the April 2010 explosion at the Tesoro refinery.
“The Anacortes community deserves better after four years of waiting and countless delays from CSB,” Larsen wrote in a letter to board Chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso.
The Chemical Safety Board’s investigation into the refinery explosion that claimed seven lives has been delayed several times. While the board had scheduled a public meeting in Anacortes this month to discuss the report, they have now cancelled the meeting and instead plan to hold a listening session in the community. The board has not released the draft report and does not plan to before the listening session.
