SPEAKER: Joseph C. Szabo
SPEAKER'S TITLE: Administrator
AUDIENCE: Freight Industry CEO/CDO’s, Economic Development Officials, State Transportation Officials
LOCATION: Columbus, Ohio
SUBJECT: Railroad Safety Program Management
ABSTRACT: But we're here in Columbus today just one week before our rail authorizations expire, and as rail continues to lack a predictable source of federal funding like other transportation modes. So today I really want to hone in on our vision. I’d like to talk about how far we’ve come these past four years to meet President Obama’s goal to connect 80 percent of Americans to a high-performance rail network – and how far we still have to go.
