Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation-Petition for Declaratory Order
Document Number: E9-28936
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-12-04
Agency: Surface Transportation Board, Department of Transportation
In response to a petition filed by Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (AECC) on October 2, 2009, and the reply of BNSF Railway Company (BNSF), the Board is instituting a declaratory order proceeding under 49 U.S.C. 721 and 5 U.S.C. 554(e).\1\ The issues before the Board arise from Tariff 6041-B Items 100 and 101 (Tariff provisions), issued by BNSF on May 27, 2009, which require that Powder River Basin (PRB) coal shippers using the Joint Line \2\ or the Black Hills Subdivision must ensure that the emission of coal dust from the cars does not exceed the coal dust emissions standards set by BNSF. The issues raised in these filings include: (1) Whether the Tariff provisions constitute an unreasonable rule or practice; (2) whether BNSF may establish rules designed to inhibit the dispersion of coal dust from coal trains operating over its lines; and (3) whether refusal to provide service for non-compliance with the Tariff provisions or other actions to enforce compliance would violate BNSF's common carrier obligation. Due to the vital role transportation of coal by rail plays in the nation's energy supply and the economy in general, the Board seeks public comment and participation on this matter.
