Host your own NRC Grassroots Event

The NRC's grassroots program was created to invite United States Congressmen to visit NRC member facilities and construction project sites. These visits give the Members of Congress firsthand knowledge of the rail industry and demonstrate how rail contractors and suppliers are positively affecting the rail industry and the local and national economy. If your company is interested in hosting your Congressman for a visit, please contact Ashley Bosch to begin the process.

Fallston, MD - On 5/31/13, U.S. Congressman Andy Harris (R-MD-1), a member of the House Appropriations Committee, visited the Rhinehart Railroad Construction offices in Fallston, MD. The NRC organized the event.
