Approval of rail cost adjustment factor.


The Board has approved the rebased first quarter 2003 rail cost adjustment factor (RCAF) and cost index filed by the Association of American Railroads. As required by statute, the RCAF was rebased using the fourth quarter 2002 index value as the denominator and first quarter 2003 index value as the numerator (10/1/02 = 1.00). Rebasing is required every five years. The rebased first quarter 2003 RCAF (Unadjusted) is 0.996. The rebased first quarter 2003 RCAF (Adjusted) is 0.512. The rebased first quarter 2003 RCAF-5 is 0.495.
