Rep. Foster Responds to Canadian National's Legal Action Against the STB

Press Release

Location: Washington D.C.

Today, Rep. Foster released the following statement in reaction to the legal action Canadian National took against the Surface Transportation Board:

"Today we learned the unfortunate, but unsurprising news that Canadian National has taken adversarial legal action against the Surface Transportation Board because the board is not rubber stamping the purchase of the EJ&E railroad sale fast enough. This response represents the predictable continuation of CN's efforts to railroad our regulatory process and ignore the voices of the community the purchase will devastate.

"I remain steadfast in my opposition to the sale of the EJ&E because it will not benefit the people of the 14th District in any way. In fact, it could cost our community jobs and make us less safe. I will continue working on behalf of the people of the 14th District in a bipartisan way to stop the sale of the EJ&E, because as a former scientist and businessman, I know good solutions when I see them, and CN is the problem, not the solution."
