Comment

The George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center works to improve regulatory policy through research, education, and outreach. As part of the Center’s mission, Center scholars conduct careful and independent analyses to assess rulemaking proposals from the perspective of the public interest. This comment on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) proposed standards for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica does not represent the views of any particular affected party or special interest, but is designed to evaluate the effect of OSHA’s proposal on overall social welfare. It builds on an article by the authors, “Defining What to Regulate: Silica & the Problem of Regulatory Categorization,” which we attach to this comment and respectfully submit for the record in this rulemaking.
