On May 18, 2018 the Federal Railroad Administration published in the Federal Register a notice of funding opportunity detailing the application procedures and requirements to obtain grant funding for eligible positive train control (PTC) system projects. The total funding available for awards is $250,000,000 for eligible PTC system projects. The notice observed that grantees “must comply with all applicable laws and regulations … including the Buy America requirements and the provision deeming operators rail carriers and employers for certain purposes.” Those requirements in 49 U.S.C. 24405 provide in part that, “The Secretary of Transportation may obligate an amount that may be appropriated to carry out this chapter for a project only if the steel, iron, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States.”
