Jacksonville, Fla. • Questions about the health of the CEO hired by CSX railroad this spring are being raised ahead of next month's shareholder vote on his compensation.

The Wall Street Journal reports (http://on.wsj.com/2qB5xQG ) 72-year-old Hunter Harrison often works from home and occasionally uses oxygen because of an undisclosed health issue

Harrison told the newspaper doctors cleared him to work, and he believes he can lead the turnaround he began in March at CSX.

CSX spokesman Rob Doolittle says Harrison remains actively involved in the railroad's operations and there haven't been questions about his performance.

CSX shareholders are voting on whether the Jacksonville, Florida, railroad should pay the $84 million in compensation Harrison forfeited when he left Canadian Pacific railroad earlier than planned. Harrison says he will resign if the compensation isn't approved.
