Foxx on Parker’s Confirmation as Head of OSHA

Today, Republican Leader of the Education and Labor Committee Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Doug Parker to run the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):

“I am deeply concerned with Doug Parker’s ability to run OSHA. He was a key architect of the controversial and discredited COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard in California, which placed dozens of unworkable and bewildering new mandates on employers that often conflicted with current science and did nothing to improve workplace safety outcomes. Now he will be in charge of implementing President Biden’s coercive national workplace vaccine-and-testing mandate, which will have a devastating impact on workers, business owners, and our economy.

“His track record suggests that instead of following the science, he will follow in the Biden administration’s footsteps by creating uncertainty and confusion through politicized policy.”
