Gregory spent more than six years serving in senior legislative positions in the US House of Representatives, where he advised two members of the Energy and Commerce Committee. During his tenure in Congress, he first served as policy director and chief workforce policy advisor for the late Rep. Charles W. Norwood (GA-10), who chaired the House Education and Workforce Subcommittee on Workforce Protections. The Subcommittee on Workforce Protections oversees US occupational safety and health policy, and is the primary subcommittee of jurisdiction with oversight over OSHA, MSHA and NIOSH. Gregory advised Chairman Norwood during the Subcommittee’s investigation of several high-profile mining accidents in West Virginia and Kentucky; the investigations ultimately led to the passage of the MINER Act, the first major amendment to mine safety and health statute since the 1970s.
