But what should the railroad industry expect from the current Congress? This session will provide an overview of the key Capitol Hill measures that can impact the industry, including:

Passenger rail funding for intercity passenger and high speed rail
Passenger rail liability reform
The impact of a Surface Transportation Bill
Surface Transportation Board reauthorization
