House bill, H.R. 5376

The bill also includes significant increases in OSHA’s maximum penalties:

Penalties for serious violations (and failure to abate violations) would increase from $13,653 to $70,000
Penalties for willful violations (and repeat violations) would increase from $136,530 to $700,000.

Pull the bill and read it folks! Not good
