OSHA Withdraws Indoor Air Quality Proposal
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has withdrawn its Indoor Air Quality proposal and terminated the rulemaking proceeding related to it. In its Federal Register notice, OSHA writes that the reason for the withdrawal of the proposal and termination of the rulemaking proceeding was because, "In the years since the proposal was issued, a great many state and local governments and private employers have taken action to curtail smoking in public areas and in workplaces."

OSHA believes that withdrawal of this proposal will also allow it to devote more of its resources to other projects including a number of important occupational safety and health standards.
