STB Updates Emergency ICR for Urgent Rail Service Issues

On Friday, the Surface Transportation Board published an amended notice for an emergency information collection request approval in the Federal Register (87 FR 36569-36571) for “Urgent Rail Service Issues”. This notice supplements an earlier request for an emergency ICR on the same topic that was published on June 3rd, 2022. The original request was to support the STB’s reporting requirements ordered on May 6th, 2022. Friday’s revised request comes as a result of the STB’s concerns about inadequate information provided by the four largest Class I railroads ordered to provide service recovery plans. A subsequent order was issued by the STB on June 13th, 2022 explaining those information deficiencies and requiring those railroads to provide more specific details about those plans. This amended ICR notice addresses those increased information requirements.

The STB is soliciting public comments on the ICR notice (not the underlying order). Comments may be submitted via email to Comments should be submitted by July 1st, 2022.
