THE EFFECTS OF THE REGULATORY REFORM PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN THE RAILROAD REVITALIZATION AND REGULATORY REFORM ACT OF 1976
This report describes the legislative history of Section/202(g) rate provisions of the Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976 and the ICC's rulemaking proceeding implementing those provisions. It suggests potential problem areas and issues and comments on the effect of these provisions on shippers and carriers of all modes. The Act required the Secretary of Transportation and ICC to report separately; this is the DOT submission. It is observed that railroads have been slow in adopting demand-sensitive rates and the ICC had been slow in following the Act's provisions for new regulatory procedures.
