Posted in on Fri, Jun 3, 2011

A letter on behalf of ASSE’s members in North Carolina urges Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) to join in sponsoring  the Voluntary Protection Program Act (S. 807), a bill to place OSHA’s Voluntary Protectiion Program into the Occupational Safety and Health Act, ensuring that OSHA will continue the program.  The bipartisan bill was sponsored by Senator Michael B. Enzi (R-WY) and Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA).  Senator Enzi is the Ranking Member and Senators Landrieu and Hagan are members of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.  North Carolina members have also individually urged Senator Hagan’s support for the bill in a grass roots effort.  ASSE supports S. 807 and HR 1511, the companion bill in the House of Representatives.
