WASHINGTON – The three-day Surface Transportation Board hearing on the proposed Canadian Pacific-Kansas City Southern merger has ballooned to a six-day hearing.
Testimony and questioning are taking longer than anticipated, STB Chairman Martin J. Oberman said at the start of the session this morning (Friday, Sept. 30) , which had been scheduled to be the third and final day.
As a result, the board will hold mostly virtual hearings on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 3-4, with remaining witnesses. Canadian Pacific and Kansas City Southern will appear on Thursday, Oct. 6, to rebut comments made throughout the hearings.
