AGC opposes OSHA rule PAMPLIN MEDIA GROUP FILE PHOTOS - The AGC urged senators to support H.J.Res. 83 to 'stop OSHAs abuse of authority.'

The Associated General Contractors call for workers in the industry to oppose the OSHA rule extending the statute of limitations for recordkeeping violantions.

On March 1, the House passed H.J. Res. 83 to repeal the rule.

The AGC says the rule, which extends the limitations from six months to five and a half years, doesn't improve worker safety or health but does expose business owner to unfair liability for honest and inadvertent paperwork mistakes. The rule was issued by the Obama administration in December, but two federal courts have already rebuked it.
