In Case You Missed It: Congressman Collins fights against overregulation, decries job killing burdens

WASHINGTON—– Yesterday, Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) spoke in a hearing by the House Judiciary Committee on “Triple Threat to Workers and Households: Impacts of Federal Regulations on Jobs, Wages, and Startups.”

“You know what one of the problems with the silica rule is? They can’t

get honest measurements. They can’t determine actual levels.

You go to the granite industry in my district, and you actually go into one

of these where they are already using protective devices, and try and

measure “ambient silica”? It sounds great, but the

practicality is, it is almost impossible to read.”
