Congress Sends White House Surface Transportation Board Reform Bill

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Legislation that has been sent to President Obama will increase the Surface Transportation Board (STB) from three to five members and take the Agency out of the Department of Transportation (DOT). The bill also would seek to reduce litigation costs for small businesses, provide certainty to railroads and shippers in the decision-making timeline, and process and expand options for service dispute resolutions (Transport Topics).
