Seventy- four percent of those voting in the referendum favored amendment of the Plan. Additional revisions are made to remove unnecessary language in the Plan and regulations. Also, a section of the regulations is clarified and revised accordingly.

Revisions to Passenger Train Emergency Preparedness Regulations
FRA is amending its existing regulation entitled Passenger Train Emergency Preparedness by revising or clarifying various provisions.
