Union Pacific investors have rejected shareholder proposals that dealt with executive ownership of the railroad's stock and the company's lobbying.
The Omaha-based railroad disclosed the results of the
shareholder voting on Friday. Union Pacific's annual meeting was
held Thursday in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Both of the resolutions attracted the support of less than one-third of the shareholders voting. UP's board opposed both measures.

The other proposal would have required Union Pacific to disclose
additional information about its political contributions and
