Halvorson Disapppointed with STB’s final EJ&E Acquisition EIS

Crete, IL--(ENEWSPF)-- Congresswoman-elect Debbie Halvorson issued the following statement in regard to the recently released final version of the Surface Transportation Board's Environmental Impact Study of the proposed sale of the EJ&E rail line to Canadian National:
