The FPAA joined 193 agriculture groups under the Ag Transportation Working Group (ATWG) calling for swift action from Congress to help avert a rail strike.  The ATWG wrote, “A strike or lockout combined with existing challenges in the rail system, at our ports, with trucking and with record low water levels on the Mississippi River impacting numerous barge shipments would be catastrophic for the agricultural and broader U.S. economies. Congress must act to prevent this from occurring if the parties cannot reach agreement.”
