NLBMDA Escalates OSHA Crane Rule to Congress

Last month NLBMDA met with members of Congress in the House Education and Labor Committee, to brief them on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) crane rule, the material delivery exemption, and the 2016 Letter of Interpretation (LOI). The committee was receptive to the concerns of the association and they made a commitment to work with the leadership at the agency towards a resolution.

OSHA is now revisiting the Letter of Interpretation per NLBMDA’s formal request to withdraw it. There is currently no specific date for withdrawal or clarification. NLBMDA is continuing to work with OSHA on addressing the issue and is confident that the agency will give a good-faith examination of the errors in the letter. The association will have more information in the coming months regarding a resolution.\

NLBMDA Applauds Federal Budget Agreement
The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) is applauding President Trump for signing the Bipartisan Budget Act which establishes a federal budget for fiscal years (FY) 2020 and 2021 and also suspends the debt limit through July 31, 2021.

“NLBMDA is pleased that Congress and the President could come together and pass this budget agreement,” said President & CEO Jonathan Paine. “Establishing these spending levels and addressing sequestration will provide for a more robust and healthy appropriations process. We urge policymakers to work diligently on appropriations to avoid any threat of a government shutdown at the end of September.”
