WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Chemistry Council (ACC) welcomes the introduction of the Freight Rail Shipping Fair Market Act and calls on members of Congress to support its passage.
Earlier this year, ACC’s Chris Jahn testified before the U.S House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure to offer recommendations on how Congress can help the Surface Transportation Board (STB) address the service problems resulting from massive consolidation and operational changes within the freight rail industry.
Chairmen Payne along with Chairs DeFazio, Scott and Costa have carefully crafted a sensible legislative package after listening to testimony from the STB, shippers, rail carriers and other important stakeholders.
