Grassroots Advocacy

REMSA's Grassroots Program unites railroads and maintenance-of-way suppliers to advocate on our shared industry priorities. To date, our program has hosted 33 Members of Congress at our member company facilities and generated over 200 rail industry and local media articles, highlighting the products and services of our membership. 

In 2018, our program reached new heights as the Association of American Railroads and GoRail hosted a Railroad Achievement Award event for Congressman Peter DeFazio as a part of our program.
