ABC test

I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton

Canada sticks to its June deadline for the ELD mandate. New details on Tuesday’s deadly wreck in California. And it’s Jedi versus Sith versus snow in Minnesota.

III. Ports and freight rates

Backups at the ports are creating a ripple effect, boosting rates on the spot market.

IV. ABC test on federal agenda
