This is a testimony compilation of the April 4, 2017 hearing on "Keeping Goods Moving: Continuing to Enhance Multimodal Freight Policy and Infrastructure" held before the Senate Subcommittee on Surface Transportation and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety, and Security of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. From the opening statement of Deb Fischer: "As Congress and the Trump Administration work to address our nation's infrastructure needs with revenue from tax reform, expanding the national freight program should be an idea on the table. I believe that it would be a wise investment in America's future. Along with investing in infrastructure, Congress must keep in mind how unintended regulatory consequences can impact our freight network. Whether it is a delay to a critical highway project or a new requirement that negatively alters the supply chain, burdensome regulations can hinder progress." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dereke Leathers, Lance Fritz, Michael Ducker, and James Pelliccio.
