Lobbyists in Washington, D.C., are geared up for the current 4 hot issues…Democrats, women’s groups and labor unions all want to expand employees’ rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act. Employers and others want to tighten these rules…Electric companies seek to modify coal-fired power plants without having to install new pollution control equipment. Environmentalists, on the other hand, say increased emission harms public health…Our old friend “hours of service” is back in the fight. Companies are seeking an increase in the minimum number of hours commercial truck drivers can work. But highway safety advocates will be on the Hill arguing that driver fatigue will increase the risk of crashes. No wonder Congress wants to make multiple reservations to get out of town.
