Start Preamble


Surface Transportation Board, DOT.


Proposed railroad cost recovery procedures productivity adjustment.


In a decision served on March 4, 2014, we proposed to adopt 1.010 (1.0% per year) as the measure of average change in railroad productivity for the 2008-2012 (5-year) averaging period. This represents an increase of 0.1% from the average for the 2007-2011 period. The Board's March 4, 2014 decision in this proceeding stated that comments may be filed addressing any perceived data and computational errors in our calculation. It also stated that, if there were no further action taken by the Board, the proposed productivity adjustment would become effective on March 19, 2014.


The productivity adjustment is effective March 19, 2014. Comments are due by March 17, 2014.


Send comments (an original and 10 copies) referring to Docket No. EP 290 (Sub-No. 4) to: Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.
