SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NGCC arose from a proceeding instituted
by the Surface Transportation Board's (Board) predecessor agency, the
Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC), in National Grain Car Supply--
Conference of Interested Parties, Ex Parte No. 519. The NGCC was formed
as a working group to facilitate private-sector solutions and
recommendations to the ICC (and now the Board) on matters affecting
grain transportation.
    The purpose of this meeting is to continue discussions of private-
sector solutions to problems related to the availability of railroad
cars for distribution and transportation of grain. In particular, rail
carrier members will report on their preparedness to transport the Fall
grain harvest.
    The meeting, which is open to the public, will be conducted
pursuant to the NGCC's charter and Board procedures. Further
communications about this meeting may be announced through the Board's
Web site at http://www.stb.dot.gov.

    This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the
human environment or the conservation of energy resources.

    Dated: June 15, 2007.
Vernon A. Williams,
Secretary.
