The Staggers Rail Act deregulated the freight rail industry, relying on competition to set rates, and allowed for differential pricing (charging higher rates to those more dependent on rail). The act gave the Surface Transportation Board (STB) authority to develop remedies for shippers “captive” to one railroad and set a threshold for shippers to apply for rate relief. This report reviews: (1) changes in the railroad industry since the Staggers Rail Act, including rates and competition; (2) STB actions to address competition and captivity concerns and alternatives that could be considered; and (3) freight demand and capacity projections and potential fed. policy responses. The author examined STB data, conducted interviews, and held a panel. Charts and tables.
