STB Hearings Set for CP-KCS Merger

Three days of public hearings will be held in September by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board as it continues to review the proposed merger of Canadian Pacific and Kansas City Southern.

The hearings will be held at STB headquarters in Washington on Sept. 28, 29 and 30 and will be livestreamed online.

In a news release, regulators said the deadline to register to speak during the hearings will be Sept. 14. It also set an Oct. 14 deadline for submission of briefs in the case. After that date the STB will close the record on the merger.

By federal law regulators are required to issue a ruling in a merger proceeding within 90 days after the close of the record unless an environmental analysis has not been completed.

That would push the decision date for the merger to as late as mid-January with the decision becoming effective 30 days later.
