On August 1, 2023, the Freight Rail Customer Alliance (FRCA) sent a letter to President Biden recommending that he nominate Surface Transportation Board (STB or Board) Chair Martin Oberman (D) and Member Patrick Fuchs (R), each, to a second term on the Board. Since joining the Board in January 2019, Chair Oberman and Member Fuchs have, through their leadership and contributions, been instrumental in the Board’s role in providing effective oversight over the railroad industry, helping it to meet its statutory obligations, and fulfilling its critical role within our nation’s overall supply chain.  Chair Oberman’s term ends December 31, 2023 and Member Fuchs’s term expires January 17, 2024.  The complete letter can be read here.
