Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization Declares Briefing with Senate Staff Members a Success, Baron and Budd Reports
Date:8/4/2014

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 04, 2014

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) held a briefing on July 17 with staff members representing senators from 28 states to educate them on the dangers of asbestos and the need for reform, the national mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd reports. More than 60 people attended, according to the ADAO, and 31 senators were represented, leading the organization to term the briefing a “huge success.” (http://www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org/archives/27744)

The ADAO is urging more effective reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act, which was originally passed in 1976. The organization believes that current reform measures under consideration in Congress will weaken – and even potentially eliminate – safety measures which are now in existence. The ADAO believes, for example, that victims of asbestos exposure could see their attempts to obtain compensation delayed or possibly even denied.

Several speakers participated in the briefing, some sharing their stories of loss while others covered a wide range of additional topics. These included facts and statistics on asbestos use in the United States, exposure to the material in homes, schools and at work, and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to asbestos. The ADAO also called on Congress to investigate the continued importation of asbestos as well as the potential risk of vermiculite insulation, which contains asbestos and is found in millions of homes across the country.

ADAO was founded in 2004 to fight for a global ban on asbestos, as well as to inform the public about the dangers of the material. ADAO also provides support for patients suffering from asbestos-related diseases as well as their families. The national mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd supported ADAO’s efforts for several years.

“These briefings are truly essential to obtaining a national ban on asbestos,” said Russell Budd, managing director of the mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd. “We are very proud of the work that the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization continues to do every day.”

Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases kill thousands of Americans each year. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, over has passed away from mesothelioma, the national mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd may be able to help.
