The Michigan Chemistry Council (MCC) today urged Congressional action to keep critical rail shipments moving, and thanked U.S. Representatives Fred Upton, Candice Miller, Bill Huizenga, and Dan Benishek for sponsoring legislation to address this important issue.

“Freight rail service is essential for the safe transportation of many products vital to our everyday lives, including chlorine disinfectants that keep our water clean, fertilizers that help our farmers feed the world, and basic feedstocks for a wide range of manufactured goods,” said John Dulmes, MCC Executive Director. “Our members and their employees rely heavily upon freight rail to get their jobs done every day. Any disruption in this service will have cascading economic effects across Michigan and our nation.”
