DOT Said To Move Forward on Crude-By-Rail Rules This Week

"The Department of Transportation is planning on sending a 'comprehensive' package of proposals regarding rail shipments of crude oil to the White House for its review [this] week.

The proposals will include some options for improving the standards for tanker cars that carry crude oil, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a blog post late Thursday.

'We look forward to working collaboratively with [the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs] on the administration’s proposal and initiating the formal comment process as soon as possible,' Foxx wrote."
