A proposed spending plan that would restore safety research dollars, while making further cuts to OSHA gained approval from a House panel July 13.
The House Appropriations Subcommittee for Labor, Health and Humans Services, Education, and Related Agencies voted 9–6, with Republicans backing the bill and Democrats opposing. The bill’s next step is a hearing by the full House Appropriations Committee, a meeting expected July 19, subcommittee Chairman Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) told Bloomberg Government.
The draft budget calls for funding the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration at $531.5 million—about $12 million less than the Trump administration recommended. For fiscal 2017, the agency received $552.8 million.
The Mine Safety and Health Administration would receive $360 million, about $14 million less than Trump’s request. The agency received $373.8 million for fiscal 2017.
Trump proposed cutting National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health spending by 40 percent from its fiscal 2017 level. The subcommittee restored most of the dollars, focused on grants and research centers, and proposed a $325.2 million budget.
