Bills Introduced – 10-19-18

Yesterday with both the House and Senate meeting in pro forma session (ie: 90+% of the congresscritters staying at home campaigning) there were 10 bills introduced. One of those bills is likely to receive further consideration in this blog:

HR 7076 To reinstate requirements pertaining to electronically controlled pneumatic brake systems on high-hazard flammable unit trains, and for other purposes. Rep. Herrera Beutler, Jaime [R-WA-3] 

Since Herrera-Beutler is representing Vancouver, WA, which is well known for its desire to restrict the operation of oil trains, I suspect that this bill is more about campaigning than legislating. Still, it will be interesting to see how bill intends to get around the cost-benefit issue that allowed the Trump Administration to kill the ECP brake requirements.
