“Refiners and petrochemical manufacturers are relieved that the two sides were able to come to agreement and avert what would have been a disastrous event for our economy and energy security. We hope the same urgency and energy that brought about this outcome can now be directed to the work of bipartisan Surface Transportation Board reauthorization and service reforms to make America’s freight rail system more efficient and accountable, competitive, and less costly for shippers and consumers.” – Chet Thompson, AFPM President and CEO
