IMA and NISA Sign Letter to Trump Administration Encouraging the Nomination of Members to the STB

Posted By Chris Greissing, Tuesday, January 16, 2018
The Industrial Minerals Association - North America (IMA) and National Industrial Sand Association (NISA) are members of the Rail Customer Coalition (RCC).  The RCC is a large collection of trade associations representing a broad cross section of manufacturing, agricultural, and energy industries that depend on the railroads to deliver reliable and affordable service in order to remain competitive in a global market.  

The RCC has sent a letter to the Trump Administration encouraging the Administration to nominate new members and a permanent Chair to serve on the Surface Transportation Board (STB).  It is imperative that we have a fully-staffed STB committed to moving forward on freight rail policy reforms that will streamline overly burdensome regulatory procedures and promote greater competition in the rail sector.  There are currently only two of the five STB positions filled and no permanent chair causing progress to stall.  

A total of 72 associations and companies signed on to the letter, including IMA, NISA and several of our member companies.  IMA and NISA will continue to work within the coalition to promote commonsense solutions to the transportation issues our member companies are currently facing.  

The letter is attached.
