California Senate bill would triple penalties for refinery air violations
California Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, wants to triple some of the most serious penalties local air districts can levy against oil companies when their refineries violate emissions regulations. Dodd, who represents a district that's home to refineries owned by Shell, Tesoro and Valero, introduced legislation on Feb. 14 that would raise the limits on certain fines for the first time in decades.
