On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, Judy Petry, Chair of The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association and President/General Manager of Farmrail Inc. testified before the United States House Ways and Means Committee’s Subcommittee on Tax Policy.

At this hearing titled,¬†Post Tax Reform Evaluation of Recently¬†Expired Tax Provisions, Ms. Petry testified to the effectiveness of the Section 45G Short Line Railroad Tax Credit. “Since enactment, the credit has allowed us to spend an additional $2.1 billion of our earned revenues towards the goal of getting our network into a state of good repair,” Petry said, “It is a critical part of how we can reinvest so much back into our small business and still have enough to keep the lights on and meet payrolls.”
