PHMSA Now Drafting Crude-by-Rail Final Rule
According to Secretary Chao’s letter, identical copies of which were sent to leaders of relevant House committees, PHMSA received about 131 comments on its proposal to expand comprehensive oil spill response plans (OSRP) requirements to railroads that transport HHFTs.
Earlier this year, we named PHMSA’s new oil spill response plan rules for HHFTs—trains that carry 20 cars of a Class 3 flammable liquid in a continuous block or 26 or more such cars across the entire train—among our top hazmat rules to watch in 2018.
PHMSA’s semiannual Agenda of rulemaking activities, released in December, predicted a Final Rule would be ready by July 2018. In the Secretary’s latest update to Congress, required under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act or FAST Act, she states that the Final Rule is still expected in Fiscal Year 2018.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!

I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
