FY2016 Budget Request Contains $592 Million for OSHA

Labor Secretary Perez said the DOL FY2016 budget "reinforces our commitment to job training and apprenticeship, fair and equal pay, paid leave, safe workplaces and secure retirements."

President Obama's FY2016 budget includes $592 million for OSHA, as well as $395 million for MSHA. Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez issued a statement about the administration's priorities for the fiscal year as outlined in the budget, which provides $13.2 billion in discretionary funding for DOL.

"In his State of the Union address, President Obama said his budget would work to restore the link between hard work and growing opportunity for every American. This department's budget expands our investments on behalf of working families; it reinforces our commitment to job training and apprenticeship, fair and equal pay, paid leave, safe workplaces and secure retirements," Perez.

Part of the $13.2 billion will help make improvements in DOL's programs and infrastructure to ensure they are positioned to meet the needs of the modern workforce and economy. The budget request includes $2 billion for a Paid Leave Partnership Initiative to assist as many as five states that wish to launch paid leave programs, while $3 billion will fund the Connecting with Opportunity Initiative, which helps disconnected youth.
