U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.) earlier this month toured R. J. Corman's headquarters in Nicholasville, Ky.
The aim of the tour was to highlight the "significant role" that freight rail plays in the nation's economy and to identify how R. J. Corman and other suppliers support the rail industry, company officials said in a press release.A former member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Guthrie recently cosponsored the Building Rail Access for Customers and the Economy Act (H.R. 4626/S. 2959), which proposes to make the federal 45G short-line tax credit permanent. His congressional district consists of 21 counties in Kentucky, including parts of Jessamine County, which is home to R. J. Corman's corporate headquarters. Guthrie's jurisdiction also covers areas served by R. J. Corman's Bardstown and Memphis lines. "Opportunities like this allow us to further develop our connections with these individuals and provide insight into how the freight railroad industry positively impacts our economy – locally and nationally," said R. J. Corman Chairman Fred Mudge. "We look forward to continuing a partnership with the congressman as he represents the 2nd District."
