One of the proposals, by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, would ensure that required hazard labels and classifications in the United States are the same as those used in other nations, which could save companies $585 million a year.
The departments of Commerce and State will undertake steps to make it easier for U.S. companies to export products.
Another, by the Environmental Protection Agency, would eliminate the requirement that states install a system to protect against fuel polluting the air at gas stations, since modern vehicles already have these systems. That would save up to $67 million a year.
This has been a focus of the Obama Adinistration from the beginning. It is import for the US economy to start increasing exports. Instead of focusing on spending.
