On Tuesday, July 11th, the White House issued a press release announcing its nomination of Ronald L. Batory as the next administrator of the Federal Railroad Administrator (FRA).

Presidential nominations must be confirmed by the Senate. A confirmation hearing could take place before the Senate recesses in August. The Journal will issue updates as warranted.

The Journal of HazMat Transportation is excited to welcome Ms. Cynthia Hilton to its writing staff as a Legislative Advisor.

Ms. Hilton is a former co-facilitator of the Interested Parties for Hazardous Materials Transportation (1995-2017). She worked for industry associations representing companies engaged in hazmat transportation from 1985-2017. Prior to that, Ms. Hilton held various professional staff positions in Congress and the Executive Branch (1973-1985). Her work most recently appeared in our 27th Anniversary Edition, the May/June issue, with the report Leading Change: Opportunities for Regulatory Reform. Subscriber login is required.
