Now is the time to contact your Senators to save OSHA from crippling budget cutspassed by the U.S. House of Representatives. Contacting your Senators is very simple -- just go here, look up your Senators, and their contact information will appear. Here is a sample message that you can copy and paste:
Dear Senator --------,
I am writing because I am very concerned about the devastating cuts to the budget of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration that were passed by the House of Representatives. America's workers need stronger protections of their heath and safety on the job, not weaker. The argument that OSHA regulations are "job-killing" is completely spurious--Americans need good, safe jobs.
Please protect OSHA's budget from these proposed cuts which would cripple the agency's ability to fulfill its mission of ensuring that all Americans have safe and healthy workplaces.
