DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC76 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Approved State Plans for Occupational Safety and Health 
Abstract: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will propose a revision to each State's subpart under 29 CFR section 1952 and 29 CFR section 1956 to scale back the detailed descriptions of OSHA-approved State plans, including the jurisdictional explanation, purely historical data, and other unnecessary information that may be subject to change. These changes will also necessitate cleanup within 29 CFR section 1902. The purpose of this revision is to eliminate the requirement to engage in the arduous rulemaking process in order to make changes to a State plan's jurisdiction or other descriptive language. OSHA will publish a Direct Final Rule (DFR) concurrently with a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). If OSHA does not receive significant adverse comment on the DFR, it will confirm the effective date of the DFR and with draw the NPRM. If OSHA does receive a significant adverse comment, it will withdraw the DFR and proceed with the rule proposal process
