The Department of Labor – having ignored a requirement to give public notice of a regulatory change — is rushing to push through a new rule that Will make it tougher to regulate the on-the-job exposure by workers to chemicals and toxins. The proposed rule change only surfaced when the White House Office of Management and Budget posted a notice on its website that it was reviewing the proposal, identified only by its nine-word title. No text is available. (7/24/08)
