H.R. 2095 (110th): Railroad Safety Enhancement Act of 2008

Oct 17, 2007 at 6:10 p.m. ET. On Passage of the Bill in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2095 (110th) in the House.

The Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008 is a United States federal law, enacted by Congress to improve railroad safety. Among its provisions, the most notable was the mandate requiring positive train control (PTC) technology to be installed on most of the US railroad network by 2015. This was spurred by the 2008 Chatsworth train collision the month prior to passage of the act. In October 2015 Congress extended the deadline to 2018.
