Free Market Coalition Letter on Reciprocal Switching

On April 9, 2018, a coalition led by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a non-profit public policy organization, sent a letter to both sides of Congress urging lawmakers to review regulations proposed by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board surrounding reciprocal switching of railroads.

“Given the importance of private railroads to the national economy, it is imperative to install Board members who will carry out their congressional charter, not embark on wholesale policy changes supported only by those seeking backdoor price controls — the same sort of overregulation and government meddling that nearly drove the industry to ruin four decades ago,” the coalition says.
