SECTION 22: PANACEA OR PARASITE

Section 22 of the Interstate Commerce Act allows, but does not require, the transportation of persons or property at reduced or free rates for governmental organizations and a substantial number of other organizations or classes of persons. This provision of the I.C. Act has recently come into the limelight because of the proposed Surface Transportation Act, which would drastically curtail the use of Section 22. The purpose of this paper is to survey this provision briefly, with special emphasis on the current positions of transport, government, and other organizations regarding the continuation of Section 22 in its present form. The paper concludes with the author's proposed solution to this quandary.
