Business, labor at odds over toughening of OSHA silica-dust rule

OSHA says the rules will protect construction workers and prevent 700 fatalities annually, but the National Federation of Independent Business and the National Industrial Sand Association say the rules would hurt businesses and jobs. The AFL-CIO supports the rule.
