More than two months since a Norfolk Southern train derailed and spilled 1.6 million pounds of toxic chemicals into the East Palestine community, the rail company’s CEO will testify before an Ohio Senate rail safety panel Tuesday and outline the circumstances around the fiery incident.

Alan Shaw has promised millions of dollars to help the Ohio-Pennsylvania border community recover, but also faces a lawsuit from Ohio’s Attorney General Dave Yost over costs for the toxic chemical spill clean-up and environmental damage.

The lawsuit seeks to hold Norfolk Southern liable for all financial damages resulting from “the release of over one million gallons of hazardous materials” and other harmful pollutants into Ohio’s air, water, and soil. (Excerpt from Breitbart.)
