Update: President Signs Resolution to Overturn OSHA Recordkeeping Rule Criticized in WLF Paper

oshaOn April 3, 2017, President Trump signed into law House Joint Resolution 83, which nullifies an Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordkeeping rule. The US House of Representatives and the US Senate had both passed the resolution to nullify the rule under the Congressional Review Act.

We noted the House’s passage of the resolution last month in US House of Representatives Disapproves OSHA Rule Recently Analyzed in WLF Paper. A February 24, 2017 Washington Legal Foundation Legal Opinion Letter, OSHA’s Midnight Attempt to Overrule Federal Court’s Decision Is Ripe for Rescission, explained how the “clarification” rule illegally expanded employers’ obligation to make and maintain records beyond the Occupational Safety and Health Act six-month statute of limitations.
