HR 851 Introduced – ECP Brakes

Last month Rep. Herrera-Beutler introduced HR 851, the Oil and Flammable Material Rail Transportation Safety Act. This bill would reinstate the electronically-controlled pneumatic brake provisions of 49 CFR 174.310 for highly-hazardous flammable unit trains (HHFUT). This bill is identical to HR 7076 from last session. Since Herrera-Beutler is still not on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, the committee to which this bill was assigned for consideration, this bill will die from lack of attention unless she attracts a cosponsor assigned to that Committee.
