The Industrial Commission of Arizona is required to supply information on potential sources of federal funding for each proposed rulemaking under A.R.S. § 41-1021.02(B)(2). The Arizona state Occupational Safety and Health Program, administered by the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health, part of the Industrial Commission of Arizona, receives federal grant support for operations of the program. Although there is no specific federal funding for individual rules or rulemaking, the Industrial Commission is required, as a term of the federal funding agreement and as part of the state OSHA program, to adopt safety standards that are at least as effective as federal safety standards and to adopt regulations that are substantially identical to federal regulations.
