RAILROAD INFLATION-ADJUSTED INDEX AND DEFLATOR FACTOR TABLE [FR Doc. 2020–12504 Filed 6–9–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4915–01–P SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD [Docket No. EP 748] Indexing the Annual Operating Revenues of Railroads The Surface Transportation Board (the Board) is publishing the annual inflation-adjusted index and deflator factors for 2019. The deflator factors are used by the railroads to adjust their gross annual operating revenues for classification purposes. This indexing methodology ensures that railroads are classified based on real business expansion and not on the effects of inflation. Classification is important because it determines the extent to which individual railroads must comply with the Board’s reporting requirements. The Board’s deflator factors are based on the annual average Railroad Freight Price Index developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Board’s deflator factor is used to deflate revenues for comparison with established revenue thresholds.
