OSHA 2013 funding request makes its way through Congress

A House Appropriations subcommittee has approved a funding bill for the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Department of Health and Human Services, and other agencies. If it were voted into law, the bill would provide $12 billion for the DOL, which is nearly $500 million below the current appropriation and $72 million less than requested by the Obama administration.

Among other provisions, the bill would prevent OSHA from using funds to promulgate an injury and illness prevention program standard. While funding for the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) funding level would be basically unchanged, the bill would bar the MSHA from moving forward with a rule governing coal mine dust.

According to House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Kentucky), the legislation "reflects our strong commitment to reduce overregulation and unnecessary, ineffective spending that feeds the nation’s deficits and hampers economic growth."
