Dust Regulation Threat of Losing Jobs Offshore

An interesting snapshot of Congressman Jack Kingston's view that if a comprehensive combustible dust standard for general industry is promulgated then a potential threat arises in industry moving offshore instead of compliance with health and safety issues . How many agricultural business's moved offshore after the grain combustible dust standard was implemented in 1987? In either case a cost-benefit analysis is needed to move forward in the protection of the nation's workforce.
