WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - Following a request from Senator Amy Klobuchar, the Senate Commerce Committee will hold a hearing Thursday focusing on current challenges for freight and passenger rail and ways to boost safety.  Klobuchar called for the comprehensive oversight hearing in the wake of recent derailments in Two Harbors, Casselton, North Dakota and Canada.  She says safety investments need to be made to protect communities from derailments that might involve hazardous materials.
