Legislation has been introduced to help prevent future train disasters like the derailment in East Palestine, Ohio.
U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown, a democrat from Ohio, and JD Vance, a republican from Ohio, along with Bob Casey (D-PA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), John Fetterman, (D-PA); and Josh Hawley (R-MO) have introduced the bipartisan Railway Safety Act of 2023.
The legislation would include new safety requirements for trains carrying hazardous materials including mandating that rail carriers provide advance notice to state emergency response officials about what they are transporting.
