Washington, D.C. – June 3, 2019 – Ian Jefferies, Association of American Railroads President and CEO, released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to deny AAR’s petition for a writ of certiorari.

“While AAR and the freight railroad industry are disappointed that the Supreme Court denied our petition for cert regarding metrics and standards for Amtrak schedule performance, we are pleased that the metrics and standards remain invalidated.  Freight railroads are committed to providing efficient and reliable service to all their customers and tenant railroads, and we will work with the FRA and Amtrak in a way that recognizes the importance of moving increased freight volume to help support the U.S. economy.”
