                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
   Expressing the sense of Congress that the Occupational Safety and 
    Health Administration require ample public comment and a sound 
  scientific basis for its recently proposed regulation on ergonomics.

Whereas Department of Labor rulemakings are a public process where public input 
        plays a vital role;
Whereas adequate time must be provided for concerned parties to thoroughly 
        review the proposed Occupational Safety and Health Administration 
        regulations;
Whereas 100 days is a short period for review of the proposed ergonomics 
        regulation which, together with its comments, totals more than 1,200 
        pages;
Whereas the proposed regulation on ergonomics will initially affect over 
        27,000,000 American workers;
Whereas Congress supports proposals based on sound science that protect American 
        workers and jobs; and
Whereas small business is the driving force behind American job creation and 
        economic growth: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),

SECTION 1. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) Congress should support Federal regulations which are 
        based solely on sound science and fact;
            (2) public comments should play a vital role in shaping the 
        Occupational Safety and Health Administration's proposed 
        regulation on ergonomics; and
            (3) adequate time must be provided for the public to 
        thoroughly review a regulation of the magnitude and length of 
        such proposed regulation on ergonomics.
