San Luis Obispo County rejected a proposal by Phillips 66 to ship crude oil through the community.

On Wed a community in Southern Calif. rejected an oil-by-rail proposal that would have sent 3 80-car trains carrying millions of gallons of crude oil through San Luis Obispo County each week.

The proposal garnered intense criticism from community members and city officials, who feared that an increase in oil-by-rail shipments would place towns along the rail line at risk.
