Asbestos Compensation Update

Good article on the continuing struggle in Congress over a decent asbestos compensation bill. This is what it's all about: "Between 1965 and 1999, at least 259,000 people died from asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, as well as lung and gastrointestinal cancer. From 1999 to 2030, experts predict an additional 166,000 deaths connected to asbestos."
