The railroad safety reform bill will limit work hours of train engineers in an effort to prevent driver fatigue. The bill also requires rail lines to use new safety technology. In addition, the bill allots billions of dollars for Amtrak.
The bill is expected to be voted on in the House of Representatives on Wednesday morning.
The actions come after a train crash in Chatsworth killed 25 people on Sept. 12. It was the nation's deadliest train accident since 1993.
The agency that oversees train operations, the Federal Railroad Administration, has been operating under safety legislation that expired 14 years ago.
Boxer and other lawmakers want to reduce and limit the number of hours engineers can work each week. Operator fatigue is estimated to be a contributing factor in 25 percent in serious train accidents.
Lawmakers also want to mandate technology that can stop trains that are headed on a collision course.
The Senate Commerce Committee heard from NTSB investigators and rail officials. The Committee sought to work out a deal on the reforms by the end of the week before Congress takes a break.
The Los Angeles County Coroner's office released a list of people killed in the crash.
