The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has announced that it will be re-establishing the Rail Safety Advisory Committee – commonly known as ‘RSAC.’ The committee’s charter was recently dissolved in order to redesign the charter’s memberships and voting-eligibility. Rail labor unions have been assured that their voting ability and weights will not be reduced. Rather, the change was to consolidate membership to legitimate rail safety stakeholders.
TCU’s Legislative Department has been monitoring the changes and will report any significant news, if necessary.
