The Agricultural Retailers Association will be offering two new webinars to agricultural retailers. The first webinar, "Moving Freight Rail Forward" will be held Tuesday, July 7 at 2 to 3 p.m. (ET).

Michael Meenan, Senior Director, Federal Affairs, American Chemistry Council will lead the webinar. Spring 2014 rail service disruptions of fertilizer shipments and other challenges facing agricultural producers, shippers, and manufacturers over the past several years have shown a clear need for an independent regulatory agency with the proper resources and regulatory structure to adequately address important rail transportation related issues.

Learn about industry efforts to hold the railroad industry accountable to shippers through reform of the Surface Transportation Board (STB), a bipartisan, independent adjudicatory body organizationally housed within the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Find out how you can help promote greater rail competition and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the STB.
