WHAT WE DO
The Michigan Railroads Association (MRA) reviews all introduced legislation in the House and Senate. Proposed legislation affecting the rail industry is shared with our members. Final industry positions regarding legislation are then communicated to the legislature. We pursue the same activity with appropriate personnal in the state departments and the legislative rules process.
WHO WE ARE
