OSHA, NIOSH funding still being finagled
OSHA was funded in FY02 at $442.9 million, and received an approximate six percent reduction in funds for FY03 from the Bush administration, to $437 million.
But the Senate increased OSHA's budget by $26.1 million, raising its FY03 budget numbers to $469 million.
The House has yet to act on its version of OSHA funding, and probably will stick with the Bush numbers. So look for a compromise in the end, meaning OSHA again should receive a slight spending increase.
