On page 3, beginning on line 3, after "until" strike all material through "administration" on line 6 and insert "((and to the extent required by congress or the federal occupational safety and health administration))causation and remedies have been conclusively established by a preponderance of the medical and scientific community"
EFFECT: Removes the bill's repeal of the restriction on regulating work-related musculoskeletal disorders and ergonomics for nonhome offices and the provisions limiting the Department of Labor and Industries from adopting more than one industry or occupation standard per year until 1-1-2027 and instead provides that the Department of Labor and Industries may not adopt similar rules until causation and remedies have been conclusively established by a preponderance of the medical and scientific community.
