State Leaders Discuss Rail Improvement

Posted: Updated:
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx met with state leaders at the Casselton Fire Station yesterday to discuss what's been accomplished on the rails and what issues still need to be addressed. Foxx says he wants a safer system in place, but there are important hurdles to clear.

"Look, the reality is that we are moving as fast as we possibly can to an answer here, but we want to make sure we are attacking this issue with the right solution. The worst thing we can do is propose a tank car standard that's inadequate to the material that is being transported," says Foxx. 

The head of BNSF was also at the meeting.
