March 1, 2017 - With its goal of raising awareness of railway-related issues to decision-makers in our nation’s capital, Railroad Day on Capitol Hill has become an effective way to reach the ears of our Congressional leaders. A successful event truly relies on those in the Rail industry carrying our messages into Washington.
This year’s event takes place on Thursday, March 2, 2017, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown. Since 2015, the Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) connects industry rail workers to their federal representatives in their home districts. This grassroots program enables small businesses in the rail supply industry to have a voice in Washington.
According to REMSA, a successful Railroad Day will build the foundation we need to extend the 45G railroad tax credit, preserve balanced regulation, and bring a more balanced transportation infrastructure spending policy.
