U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp announced today the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) issued new rules to promote the safety of railroad operations.

The FRA’s new rules aim to improve the rail flaw detection processes. Specifically, the rules would establish minimum qualification requirements for rail flaw detection equipment operators and revise requirements for effective rail inspection frequencies, rail flaw remedial actions, and rail inspection records.
