In February the FRA published a notice of proposed rulemaking that would require some railroads to develop a Risk Reduction Program (RRP). FRA will be holding a public hearing to allow interested persons the opportunity to voice their comments on the proposal. The hearing will be held on August 27, 2015 in Washington D.C. The comment period for the proposed rule is being reopened. Comments will now be accepted until September 10, 2015.
