Western Wisconsin’s congressman is pushing to add more federal rail inspectors. Congressman Derrick Van Orden yesterday introduced a plan that would spend three million-dollars to add 15 new inspectors. He says having enough rail inspectors is key to preventing, and getting answers about train derailments. Van Orden said a lack of inspectors is one reason why we still don’t have answers about the derailment in DeSoto, Wisconsin from back in April.
