Press Release
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement applauding the Biden Administration's Executive Order giving OSHA the green light to start work on an Emergency Temporary Standard to protect workers from COVID-19:
Almost a year ago, Chairman Scott and I asked the Trump Administration to take necessary steps to protect workers from COVID-19. They never took meaningful action. Within 24 hours of being sworn in, President Biden has directed the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to address critical workplace safety needs amidst the pandemic. This is the leadership American workers deserve.
