    I sent Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin a fax about the proposed OSHA regulations regarding ammunition and components.

    His machine regurgitated the following letter about "reforming" OSHA:

    appreciate your comments regarding comprehensive
    Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) reform. As a
    businessman, I certainly sympathize with your frustration with
    overregulation. The web of regulations governing businesses is
    confusing and often counterproductive. For this reason I support
    efforts to streamline our current regulatory structure.

    Having said that, I will not support efforts to gut OSHA
    and severely restrict its enforcement capabilities. I firmly believe
    that most employers are committed to maintaining a safe
    workplace. However, too many Americans continue to die and
    suffer serious injuries and illnesses due to hazards in the
    workplace. I recognize that OSHA has been in place for over 20
    years now and has not been reformed since its enactment. The
    work environment has changed greatly during this period, and
    technology has improved, and I agree that OSHA could be
    reformed to make it more effective.

    I also believe that we need to encourage labor-management
    cooperation; it is the cornerstone of workplace safety. We must
    work to ensure that safety and health training programs are
    available on the job site. However, in accomplishing these goals,
    we must be careful not to place undue burdens on the business
    community. Most importantly, we must provide the Occupational
    Safety and Health Administration with the resources--both
    financial and personnel--necessary to promote workplace safety
    effectively.

    As I mentioned, I share your concern about overregulation,
    but I will not support an OSHA reform bill that compromises
    efforts to save lives, prevent serious injury and illness, and
    preserve the overall safety and health of our workforce. Also you
    can be certain that I will keep your thoughts in mind as the Senate
    debates this issue.




    Sincerely,


    Herb Kohl
    U.S. Senator


    In other words, nothing.

    HM, you really didn't expect anything from Kohl did you? He has to be the least ambitious Senator in Washington. He gets a failing grade nearly every year from watch groups on Senate effectiveness. Why people in our state vote for this guy is a mystery!

    Didn't have to read his bio very far to figure out why you got stonewalled. His head even leans to the left.

    AND IF YOU THINK THAT'S BAD..............Feingold replied with a form letter about immigration!

    I want to immigrate myself, to another planet. for God's sake, how can the voters be so stupid. Accepting this kind of representation is not going to help. I am happy to be the age I am, and not having to go through 50-60 years of this stupidity.

    You'd probably get the same response from Fiengold too! Wisc Senators are the closest thing to 'taxation without representation' since the Revolution.
