WASHINGTON, D.C. — Lawmakers in the House are moving to extend a federal deadline for positive train control that most railroads say they will not be able to meet, The Hill reported.

A bipartisan measure — the Positive Train Control Enforcement and Implementation Act of 2015 (H.R. 3651) — has been introduced in the lower chamber that would push back the deadline for most railroads to install automated train technology until December 2018, the report said.

Democrats on the House Transportation Committee said they are reluctantly supporting the extension of the automated train deadline to prevent a widespread interruption in train service, according to The Hill. For the full story, click here.
