THE COUNTRYSIDE COUNCIL'S STUDY OF COMMODITY TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS IN SOUTHWESTERN MINNESOTA

The Countryside Council reports on a task force study sponsored by the M. W. Kellogg Foundation covering primarily grain transportation in a 19-country area which produces nearly 300 million bushels annually, principally corn and soy beans. The absence of heavy-duty highways and threatened railroad abandonments have been of concern. Conclusions: Support be given for increased funding for rural road networks; a moratorium on all railroad abandonments be enacted to allow for state and federal officials to study the branchline problem; support be given to a proposal to conduct a feasibility study of branch lines to determine which are needed to serve the economic requirements of the region.
