Bay Area city opposes local Phillips 66 rail project
From KSBY: Another Bay Area city has joined a growing list of those opposed to a proposed oil train off-loading facility in San Luis Obispo County. The City of San Leandro unanimously passed a resolution urging the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors to deny the project permit. If approved, the project would bring up to five, 80-car trains carrying crude oil through the county to the Phillips 66 Santa Maria Refinery near Nipomo each week. Phillips 66 says rail is its only option to bring crude in from outside the state.
