CREATE & Local Chicago Leaders Excite Kids About Rail 

As part of the 75th Street Corridor Improvement Project, the Chicago Region Environmental and Transportation Efficiency (CREATE) Program partners – including IL and Chicago departments of transportation, Cook County, Metra, Class I railroads and AAR —  recently joined Chicago neighborhood community leaders to announce a program that will teach Chicago youth about working in the rail industry.

"The future of Chicago's economy will not only be built on the foundation of our transportation infrastructure, but also by the young men and women we prepare to run and operate it," said Mayor Lori Lightfoot in a press release.

Collectively, the CREATE partners will donate $200,000 to enhance free educational programs for Chicagoans at parks and libraries near the project, with Norfolk Southern donating $40,000 to Chicago Public Library Foundation’s CyberNavigator and “Teacher in the Library” programs.

Major Milestone on Short Line Tax Credit (45G)

The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) reached a historic high of 272 supporters for the companion bill in the United States House of Representatives (H.R. 510), which aims to make 45G permanent

“Congressional leadership must work together to secure certainty and renewed investment for the thousands of small communities and small businesses served by short line railroads,” said Chuck Baker, ASLRRA President. “This BRACE Act bill has an overwhelming amount of bi-partisan support, with an almost exactly even split of Democrats and Republicans.The credit has the clear support of Congress and it has been reviewed and recommended for renewal by both the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee within the past year.”

New Report: Why Federal Preemption Is Key


The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) shows how a single federal framework for networked industries involved in interstate commerce — including railroads —  would enhance efficiency and spur innovation.   
 
"Conflicting laws can also negatively impact innovation, especially for industries that rely on interstate networks. For example, a number of states have started to pass laws that require two-person crews on all freight trains, despite the fact that technology is evolving to allow one-person trains to operate as or even more safely and cost effectively. As a result, a train going through one of the states with these rules would be required to come to a complete stop in order to add a superfluous conductor — an inefficient process, the costs of which will be borne by all U.S. train consumers. Moreover, such steps will limit innovation in more autonomous rail operations."

Expert Input: Congestion Pricing is All Around Us. Why is it Taboo on Our Roads?
DJ Gribbin, Nonresident Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution

"What is so maddening is that we know how to fix the problem: Simply price use of the roads based on demand like any other good. There are multiple options for how to implement congestion pricing, some already demonstrated in cities across the world: adding new priced lanes (also known as managed lanes) to existing freeways; tolling non-carpool vehicles using high-occupancy vehicle lanes; or implementing a charge to enter congested central business districts (cordon pricing)."
