FRA
WASHINGTON — The Federal Railroad Administration will re-constitute the Railroad Safety Advisory Committee under a new charter, according to a notice in the Federal Register in September.

The committee, often simply referred to as "RSAC," is a volunteer commission that has historically advised the FRA administrator on safety issues. In recent years, the committee has made recommendations on electronically controlled pneumatic brakes, crashworthiness standards for passenger cars, and standards and objectives for railroads regarding positive train control.

According to the Register notice, the committee will have a new charter that will allow it to continue for the next two years.
