FILE - In this July 27, 2015, file photo, a passenger commuter train, left, passes one of two mile-long oil trains parked adjacent to the King County Airport in Seattle. As oil trains began rolling through its downtown a few years ago, Spokane, Wash, was among the first cities to pass a resolution calling for tougher state and federal safety regulations. But when an oil train derailed in a fiery crash in Oregon last month, after earlier rumbling through the Eastern Washington city, some city leaders didn't want to wait for the federal government to act. The Spokane City Council decided 6-0 to ask voters whether the city should fine companies that ship crude oil or coal by rail through downtown, Wednesday, July 27, 2016.
