The Bush Administration relaxed OSHA standards during the rush to clean up after 9/11, compromising workers' health and safety, with devastating results for thousands. Now those same mistakes are being repeated with recovery efforts following Sandy.

It should not be so hard for the government to get safety equipment to rescuers- stockpile the stuff, then move their butts to distribute supplies after a disaster.

These safety standards must be brought back up to the level achieved during the Clinton administration, which BushCo intentionally wrecked. Gladly signed, thanks, Susan.

OSHA needs to go back and tighten standards for safety and health prior to the bushy era.

Noted, signed, and forwarded. Comment below sent as well.

This is absolutely not acceptable. At a time when safety should be a priority, it seems to be at the bottom of the list. Those who are heroes for working tirelessly to help save the victims deserve every protection possible so that they too, do not end up being victims. It is your duty and responsibility to protect these people and once again you are failing in your responsibilities
