Railroad Day on the Hill

On May 8, RSSI staff, board members and representatives of several RSSI member companies participated in the Annual Railroad Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., the industry's annual Congressional advocacy effort. Over 500 railroaders, suppliers, and customers attended over 400 congressional appointments to discuss three important issues to our industry:

 

  • Making the the 45G Short Line Tax Credit permanent
  • Opposing bigger and heavier trucks
  • Preserving balanced regulation.

 

The event is coordinated jointly by AAR, ASLRRA, RSI, REMSA, RSSI, NRC and RTA. Thank you to all RSSI members who participated.
