On August 10, 2023, WLF filed formal comments with the Federal Railroad Administration urging it to withdraw two proposed regulations. Recently, the FRA has begun proposing rules whose costs far exceed their benefits. Here, even the FRA admits that the two proposals’ costs are higher than their benefits. But even this analysis does not consider all the costs, inflates the benefits, and ignores reasonable alternatives. So the actual gap between costs and benefits is much greater. All Americans will face increased prices at the store if the FRA does not withdraw these proposed rules.
