03.29.17 - Rep. Sheehy's Train Safety Legislation Receives First Hearing In Ohio House

 

State Reps. Michael P. Sheehy (D-Oregon) and Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) today provided sponsor testimony before the House Transportation and Public Safety Committee for House Bill 107 (HB 107), legislation to require freight train operating crews to consist of at least two individuals. 

“Although modern technology has allowed for smaller trains crews, reducing the crew to a sole person is a public safety risk. No technology safeguards can protect against operator fatigue,” said Sheehy, who worked in the railroad industry for over 40 years prior to his election as state representative. “Requiring two individuals on every freight train in Ohio will help cut down on potentially fatal accidents and keep our communities safe.”
