The undersigned trade associations appreciate the opportunity to comment on the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) request for information regarding methods and practices for advancing public participation and community engagement (PPCE).

CWS Letter to the House on OSHA's “Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process" Rule

The Coalition for Workplace Safety (CWS) and the 58 undersigned organizations urge your support for Representative Mary Miller’s Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to nullify the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Final Rule, “Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process,” published in the Federal Register on April 1, 2024, which would allow third parties looking to harm employers to accompany OSHA safety and health officers during facility inspections.

Coalition Letter to Sen. Tuberville and Rep. Davidson on Repealing Big Brother Overreach Act

The undersigned organizations, representing millions of small businesses, strongly support legislation to repeal the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA). Your bill, appropriately entitled the Repealing Big Brother Overreach Act, would put an end to this poorly constructed and onerous reporting regime. The CTA was designed to help law enforcement prevent money laundering by requiring shell companies to report information regarding their beneficial owners (BOI) to the Department of the Treasury.

Coalition Letter to Congressional Leadership on a CRA Resolution to Disapprove EPA's NAAQS for Fine Particulate Matter

The undersigned associations represent thousands of members that generate trillions of dollars in economic activity and employ millions of workers across this country. We urge you to pass a Congressional Review Act resolution to disapprove the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recently finalized rule that unnecessarily tightened the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5), which will have an adverse impact on economic growth. Protecting our environment and improving public health are priorities for our members.

Our members are committed to environmental stewardship and to policies that encourage domestic emissions reductions that address climate change. Yet, we write to raise serious concerns about an authorization request from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) pertaining to rail locomotive emissions and respectfully urge you to deny their petition.
