What Is This Class Action All About?
Norfolk Southern is set to establish a fund that will reimburse homeowners in East Palestine, Ohio, who saw their property values decrease in the wake of a February train derailment and subsequent fire and chemical spill.
In a letter addressed to four senators on May 9, Alan Shaw, president and CEO of Norfolk Southern, says the railway is establishing the fund as part of a “commitment to make it right for the people of East Palestine.”
The announcement follows Senate Commerce Committee approval of bipartisan rail safety legislation earlier this month, Cleveland.com reports.
“We are committed to this community not just for the near term, but for the long haul, and are investing in the community and its citizens to ensure its long term success,” Shaw says in his letter.
Ohio Sens. Sherrod Brown and JD Vance sponsored the legislation, which aims to prevent future rail disasters like the Norfolk Southern train derailment.
