The U.S. Senate has voted to repeal ergonomics regulations imposed last year by the Clinton administration.
The rules are designed to protect workers--including those in trucking--from repetitive motion injuries.
The regulations have received stiff opposition from Republicans and business groups, including the American Trucking Associations, who say they will cost billions of dollars annually to implement. Democrats, who are aligned with organized labor, support the new rules.
