Sen. Baldwin promotes newly proposed legislation for railway safety


May 26, 2015 | News 8000 |LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Dozens of trains make their way through La Crosse every week carrying hazardous material, and with the building of a second rail line through the city, Sen. Tammy Baldwin wants to make sure communities along the tracks are protected.

When it comes to rail safety, most of the people I talked to Tuesday said they are disappointed in the lack of regulations by the federal government.

As more and more crude oil is transported from state to state, concerned citizens believe there should be more involvement from the federal level and that is why so many are supporting Sen. Baldwin’s new piece of legislation.
