Statement Regarding March 24, 2015, American Petroleum Institute Press Release
Statement from Suzanne Emmerling, spokesperson for the U.S. DOT in response to a March 24, press release from the American Petroleum Institute (API):
"It's disappointing that API continues to look for reasons not to engage in improving safety. As Administrator Feinberg has said time and time again, while the rail industry has taken many steps to improve safety, we will always demand more and expect more from them. We continue to hope the energy industry will join in those efforts."
