FRA Certification Helpline: (216) 694-0240

On May 7, the Rhode Island State Senate unanimously advanced a rail safety bill by a vote of 37-0. The bill, 2024–S 2736, would require two-person train crews. BLET New England Legislative Board Chairman Dan Cadogan said lobbying efforts will now begin to secure passage of a companion bill in the Rhode Island House of Representatives. “The New England Legislative Board will stay the course and continue to pursue rail safety legislation to prevent future administrations from subverting the recent FRA regulation on crew size,” Brother Cadogan said.
