By Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal regulators issued an emergency order on Friday requiring the company that operates the New York commuter train involved in the deadly crash last Sunday to implement urgent temporary safety measures. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) said it ordered Metro-North Railroad, operator of the train that derailed as it entered a sharp curve in New York's Bronx borough, to take specific, immediate steps to make sure its crews did not exceed speed limits. Federal investigators have said the early morning train was traveling nearly three times the 30-mile-per-hour speed limit when it left the tracks near the end of its run from Poughkeepsie to New York's Grand Central Station. In its emergency instruction to Metro-North, which runs commuter trains from New York City to other stations in New York state and Connecticut, the FRA ordered the railroad to provide by early next week a "list of main track locations" where a reduction of more than 20 mph is required for passenger trains.
The U.S. judge managing Detroit's bankruptcy on Friday gave the city the go-ahead to move forward with a financing plan to mend broken street lights. Judge Steven Rhodes put off a decision on the matter last week after he was made aware of a potential conflict of interest centered around law firm Miller Canfield, which represents Detroit on certain bankruptcy matters as well as the Public Lighting Authority, created by a bill passed by the Michigan Legislature late last year. Miller Canfield, it said, only represents the lighting authority on bond issues. Detroit's plan is to use $12.5 million in annual utility tax revenue to back $153 million of bonds that will be issued by the Public Lighting Authority through a Michigan agency to finance improvements to the city's dilapidated public lighting infrastructure.
