SENATOR CLINTON ANNOUNCES AMENDMENT TO PROTECT FIRST RESPONDERS, WORKERS AND RESIDENTS OF NEW YORK WHO WERE EXPOSED TO ASBESTOS AFTER THE SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACKS



WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will offer an amendment - during consideration of The Fairness in Asbestos Injury Resolution Act of 2005 (S.852) - which will protect the workers and residents of New York that were exposed to more than 2,000 tons of asbestos on September 11th and in the days and weeks after the collapse of the World Trade Center. Senator Clinton issued the following statement:



“The bill as currently written provides that all asbestos claims filed in State or Federal court seeking compensation for exposure will be funneled to the Federal Asbestos Compensation Fund. As the bill is constructed, there will be claims from first responders, workers and residents of New York City who were exposed to asbestos following the tragic attack that will be precluded from the Fund because of its strict criteria.



“These first responders, workers, and residents should be allowed to seek compensation for their asbestos injuries. They will be unable to receive full and fair compensation for their asbestos-related illnesses if the current draft of the asbestos bill passes.”
