KRCA Quoted on the Senate Floor about Safety

    The KRCA was quoted on the Senate floor on Wednesday, March 22, in relation to the Volks Rule bill, which called for workplace safety regulation, but had other challenges for our industry.

    The press release, attached here, cited U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) as quoting a letter we sent.

    His remarks are below.

    “In one recent letter to my office, the Kentucky Roofing Contractors Association called for the repeal of the Volks Rule because it ‘does nothing to improve workplace safety and could be used to impose costs on employers for inadvertent paperwork violations.’  In fact, as they point out, it could even ‘divert resources away from efforts to improve workplace safety and create jobs.’
