Last week the Surface Transportation board announced that they were changing the date of their hearing, "Common Carrier Obligation of Railroads--Transportation of Hazardous Materials" (see: "STB Hearing on Railroad Common Carrier Obligations"). Instead of being held on July 16th, the meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 22nd. This was done to accommodate some witness availability issues.
The date for registering to speak at the hearing and submit prepared testimony and information for the record has also been changed to July 10th. This change was made after the Board took into account the 4th of July holiday and its impact on schedules.
