WASHINGTON — Sen. Mike Johanns says the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has overstepped its bounds and is picking on small farms in Nebraska and other states.
During a speech on the Senate floor this week, the Nebraska Republican said the agency has levied $132,000 in fines against a small Nebraska farm despite a prohibition against doing so with farming operations that have 10 or fewer employees.
