EHS Works: Proposed Rule Says Agencies Should Use Plain Language

A proposed bill, sponsored by Representative Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) would require federal agencies to use plain language when creating new regulations. As reported by Occupational Safety and Health Reporter, organizations, such as small businesses, may become confused with the sometimes complicated language used in regulations. Braley says the goal of the bill is to simplify in hopes of "saving small businesses time and freeing up money that can be better used investing in growing the business and creating jobs." Braley goes on to say that the law is needed because the Plain Writing Act of 2010 does not apply to regulations.
