I too have been given the impression that our President has rescinded the
ergonomics standard due to the perceived huge financial impact on employers.

Has this really gone into effect, written and then recalled?  Something
about huge expense to employers, but I may be incorrect.  Seems when Bush
got into office and administration was not going to be put into effect, not
sure on how the laws work here.

Enlighten me please.
