Linda Morgan is a Partner at Nossaman LLP and has over 30 years of in-depth regulatory and legislative experience in the transportation industry. She focuses her practice on railroad and other transportation matters and associated legislative, governmental, and policy issues. In 1995, President Clinton appointed her as Chairman of the former Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC), which became the Surface Transportation Board (STB) in 1996. In this role, she presided over numerous transportation regulatory proceedings, including rail rate and service matters and railroad merger cases of unprecedented national scope and complexity. In 1999, the Senate confirmed Ms. Morgan for a second term, and in 2001, President Bush asked for her continued service as Chairman until he designated a new Chairman in December 2002. Prior to joining the ICC, Ms. Morgan served for 15 years as counsel with the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, including seven years as General Counsel. During this period, Ms. Morgan was responsible for much of the legislation that established the framework for today's transportation system, including surface transportation policy that she later was in charge of implementing as Chairman of the ICC and the STB.
