Congress may be out of Washington for the Labor Day Recess (the ultimate long weekend; they come back to work on 6-3-13), but that doesn’t mean that they don’t hold hearings. There are two hearings scheduled on the West Coast this coming week and one may be of interest to the chemical safety community.
The Panel on 21st Century Freight Transportation, a special subcommittee of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will be holding a field hearing on “How Southern California Freight Transportation Challenges Impact the Nation” on Thursday in San Bernardino, CA. According to a Committee press release the panel will be looking at “how the region’s unique transportation challenges impact the movement of freight throughout the entire Nation”. Issues affecting chemical transportation and Hazmat may be addressed.
There is no indication on the Committee web site that this hearing will be web cast.
