WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 23, 2014 – Association of American Railroads (AAR) President and CEO Edward R. Hamberger today responded to the National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) recommendations around the safe movement of energy products by rail, made in conjunction with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada.
“AAR is in full agreement with the safety boards’ recommendations today, as they align with our previous calls for increased federal tank car safety standards as well as the work the industry is undertaking with our customers and the Administration in an environment of shared responsibility for the safe movement of America’s energy products. Through these efforts and more, railroads are doing all they can to make a safe rail network even safer.”
