Senate Committee Approves STB Nominee

Posted By Chris Greissing, Wednesday, August 1, 2018
This morning the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee approved, by voice vote, Martin Oberman to serve on the Surface Transportation Board (STB). With Committee approval, the full Senate now has the ability to confirm all three STB nominees during the August work period to give the STB a full five member panel.
The IMA-NA applauds today’s vote by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation to approve the nomination of Martin Oberman to serve on the STB.  For more than two years several vacancies on the Board have remained open, which has hurt the STB’s ability to address ongoing freight rail issues and advance regulatory reforms.

IMA supported the nominations of Martin Oberman, as well as the early nominations of Patrick Fuchs and Michelle Schultz, to the Surface Transportation Board and are looking forward to the three receiving a vote on the Senate floor in the near future.  

The Rail Customer Coalition earlier today released a statement applauding the nomination, which you can view here.
