Public & Media Advisory: Surface Transportation Board Reschedules Voting Conference from Jan. 30 to Jan. 31

Surface Transportation Board (Board) Chairman Roger Nober today announced that the Board has rescheduled the open voting conference originally to have taken place on Thursday, January 30, 2003, at which the Board Members were to discuss publicly among themselves, and vote on, several pending transportation cases.

Instead of beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 30, as originally scheduled (see Surface Transportation Board "News" release No. 03-2 issued January 14, 2003), the conference will now begin at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, January 31.

As originally announced, the conference will be held in Room 760, the Board's hearing room, on the 7th Floor at the agency's headquarters in the Mercury Building, 1925 K Street, N.W. (on the northeast corner of the intersection of 20th and K Sts.), Washington, D.C. While the public is invited to attend the voting conference, no public participation will be allowed.

Following the conclusion of the voting conference, a summary news release will be issued and posted under "News and Speeches" on the Board's Website at
