By Erin Voegele | November 27, 2015

The Surface Transportation Board has announced the Rail Energy Transportation Advisory Committee meeting has been rescheduled for Dec. 1 in Washington, D.C. The meeting, originally scheduled for Oct. 1, was postponed due to the possibility of a federal government shutdown.

The committee serves as a forum for the discussion of emerging issues related to the transportation of energy resources by rail, including ethanol, other biofuels, and coal. According to a notice published in the Federal Register, the purpose of the upcoming meeting is to continue discussions regarding issues related to rail performance, capacity constraints, infrastructure planning and development, and effective coordination among suppliers, carriers, and users of energy resources. 

The meeting is open to the public. Written comments can be submitted to the RETAC at any time. Additional information on the event is available on the Federal Register website.
