WASHINGTON - House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) made the following statement on House Passage of H.J.Res. 83,a measure which would block implementation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s controversial “Volks” rule:

“As with so many of the Obama-era regulations, small businesses were hit worst and first by the OSHA power grab known as the “Volks” rule. This sweeping new rule not only failed to improve the health and safety of Americans who work for small businesses, but it also created additional regulatory compliance costs and confusion for small businesses.At a time when small businesses are struggling to get back on their feet, the last thing they need to contend with is another costly, unnecessary rule dreamed up by some Washington-knows-best bureaucrat. Fortunately, this unified Republican government is continuing to work quickly and efficiently to give small businesses relief from burdensome rules like Volks.”
