Sequim Eyes Tugboat for Oil Spills

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

According to a Jan. 27 report from the Peninsula Daily News, oil, cargo and cruise industries would pay for a tugboat at Neah Bay under a proposed bill in the Washington state Legislature. House Bill 1409 -- which was introduced on Tuesday by 24th District Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim -- also would extend the tugboat's mission beyond rescue to also include responding to oil spills and save the state about $3.65 million a year, the Representative said.
