1972 Scorecard Vote

OSHA Exceptions
House Roll Call Vote 458
Issue: Other

HR 15417. The vote is on Rep. Findley's amendment to exempt firms employing 25 or fewer persons from complying with the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The amendment gave a year's moratorium to small firms so that Congress could propose more specific regulations for small businesses that claim to be harassed under the Act. But environmentalists point out that an overwhelming number of accidents occur in small plants which don't have the health and safety crews that some large firms provide. Officially the Nixon Administration took no position, but some Administration officials quietly supported the amendment. (Adopted 213-154; June 15, 1972; "No" is the correct vote.)
