SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: RETAC arose from a proceeding instituted by the Board, in Establishment of a Rail Energy Transportation Advisory Committee, STB Docket No. EP 670. RETAC was formed to provide advice and guidance to the Board, and to serve as a forum for discussion of emerging issues regarding the transportation by rail of energy resources, particularly, but not necessarily limited to, coal, ethanol, and other biofuels. The purpose of this meeting is to continue discussions regarding issues such as rail performance, capacity constraints, infrastructure planning and development, and effective coordination among suppliers, carriers, and users of energy resources. Potential agenda items include presentations by the Energy Information Administration on its latest projections on coal supply and short- and long-term oil production; a discussion of tank car supply and demand issues; industry segment reports by RETAC members; and a roundtable discussion.

The meeting, which is open to the public, will be conducted pursuant to RETAC’s charter and Board procedures. Further communications about this meeting may be announced through the Board’s website at WWW.STB.DOT.GOV.

This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.

Authority: 49 U.S.C. 721, 49 U.S.C. 11101; 49 U.S.C. 11121.

Decided: August 29, 2012.
