FRA Certification Helpline: (216) 694-0240

It’s been a year since Nevada’s governor vetoed an important rail safety bill, and the BLET is marking this anniversary by calling on Nevada legislators to put rail safety over corporate profits. A joint message from Brother Matt Parker, Chairman of the Nevada State Legislative Board, and Brother Jason Doering, BLET Division 766, reads in part: “In a state known for its high stakes, gambling with rail safety seems a perilous bet we continue to make. In addition to Amtrak trains already operating through our state, the Brightline West project will transport the most precious cargo carried by rail: people. With this fact in mind, we simply cannot continue to gamble with rail safety — the stakes are too high.”
