NRMCA Addresses Onerous Regulations with Small Business Administration
Last Thursday, NRMCA Vice President of Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Kevin Walgenbach addressed the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) about the onslaught of regulations promulgated over the last eight years that are burdensome to the ready mixed concrete industry. The SBA held a Regional Regulatory Roundtable to "hear directly from small businesses about what regulations concern them the most" and which "should be considered for reform or elimination."
Specifically, Walgenbach relayed arguments on four of the most burdensome regulations facing the ready mixed concrete industry: the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) Rule, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Phase 2-GHGs and Efficiency Standards for Heavy-Duty Trucks Rule, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Silica Rule and FMCSA’s Sleep Apnea Proposal. Walgenbach also touched on the issues of equitable enforcement and the need for greater input from industry stakeholders.
