Rail Safety Issues And First Public Hearing For PEIA Changes On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the first of four public hearings held by the Public Employees Insurance Agency (PEIA) Monday drew criticism about changes to the plan. Caroline MacGregor reports.

Also, in this show, last month’s toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, put rail safety in the spotlight. Charleston native Sarah Feinberg was involved in crafting rail safety regulations. She served as chief of the Federal Railroad Administration in the Obama White House. Feinberg spoke with Curtis Tate about some of the issues raised by recent derailments.
