The Administration and Congress represent new challenges and opportunities that we will need to face as an industry, together.
The Administration and Congress are considering burdensome regulations and increased oversight over our industry in a number of ways. Challenges impacting the Cold Chain include:
OSHA COVID-19 Standards
Increased enforcement through National emphasis Program
Considering a permanent regulation on infectious disease control in the workplace
Pursuing aggressive policies to address climate change, through both executive action and legislation
Rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, eliminating green-house gas emissions, and implementing the Green New Deal
Rolling back the Trump tax cuts
Increasing the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%, phasing out deductions for pass-through entities
Raising the top marginal income-tax rate from 37% to 39.6%
Strengthening worker organizing, collective bargaining and unions through executive action and legislation such as the PRO Act
Labor initiatives, like ‘micro-unit’ organizations and joint employer policies could quickly be reinstated
Revising EPA’s Risk Management Program (RMP) regulation and making additional requirements
Changes to Process Safety Management
