Nominations for Surface Transportation Board

Posted By Chris Greissing, Monday, March 5, 2018
The Trump Administration announced two nominees to the Surface Transportation Board late on Friday.  

The President nominated Patrick J. Fuchs, a senior professional staffer on the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.  While on the Committee, Patrick worked extensively on surface transportation issues and helped shaped policy issues for the committee.  He graduated with distinction in economics and political science and earned an MPA from the University of Wisconsin.  We believe he will bring an expertise, leadership, common sense and fairness to the STB.  

The President also nominated Michelle Shultz, a deputy general counsel at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.  Michelle received a BA in English from Pennsylvania State University; a JD from Widener University School of Law; and a Master of Governmental Administration from the University of Pennsylvania.

Both nominations are for five-year terms.  They will go before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation for consideration and then before the full Senate for confirmation.  

IMA believes both nominations were positive for shippers.  We are hopeful that the confirmation process for both will be quick and smooth and that both will be seated on the Board in short order.
