Feeling the Effects of December’s Railroad Closures?

In response to a surge in illegal migration, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol last month closed rail bridges in Eagle Pass and El Paso, Texas. While the crossings were reopened a week later, Union Pacific Railway estimates $200 million in economic activity was lost each day the crossings were closed.

Some manufacturers continue to suffer supply chain shortages following the rail closures. If your business has been impacted, contact OMA Public Policy Director James Lee so the association can better gauge the impact to members. 1/3/2024
