ABSTRACT
The article reports that the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the Chlorine Institute and The Fertilizer Institute are protesting against a special freight tariff that Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) plans to impose at the beginning of 2008. BNSF said that toxic inhalation hazardous (TIH) materials will be assessed for an unspecified additional fee unless the shipper uses tank cars that meet new construction and safety standards drawn up by the American Association of Railroads.
