Let me relieve any confusion about what will happen to OSHA, NIOSH, and EPA after the "wait and see" period is over. Every rule that can be overturned will be over turned, the budgets and work force will be cut to the point that the rest of their rules cannot be well-enforced.

As a community, we vote in high %. Let's be active, speak up, support science, and let legislators know that we vote as much as any group.

And so it begins. The first one is disturbing because this is right up there with the climate change gag order we have previously seen in Florida-

I don't care who the president or administration is - this isn=E2=80™t about them or who you voted for or against. It's about science and its role in setting government policy. We need to do what we can as a community to educate the public on the critical contributions of agencies like EPA, OSHA (that one should be even more fun-) etc. and that these need to be based on science, not a special interest agenda.
