J.D. Vance’s Railway Reform Bill Picks Up Steam

A railway reform bill championed by freshman Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) is winning over high-profile support from strange political bedfellows as it heads into committee on Wednesday.
The Railway Safety Act of 2023 was drafted after a train derailment and chemical spill contaminated the area around the small town of East Palestine, Ohio, on February 3.
The accident drew national attention as residents reported symptoms of nausea and dizziness and regional water supplies across several neighboring states showed signs of contamination.
