Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute Position on Ban Asbestos Legislation
Date:4/4/2008

groups such as the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, doctors, advocates, cancer research institutes, and national centers for excellence, we can -- here and now -- draft legislation to fully fund mesothelioma research while also supporting an effective ban as spelled out in the existing committee print.

Now versus later

The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute supports the committee print's statutory approach to an asbestos ban, and rejects the rulemaking approach used in previous attempts to ban asbestos. Statutory bans have a proven track record with toxic materials such as PCBs and DDT.

We urge all stakeholders to join with us in helping influence research funding provisions, which have yet to be crafted in the House's draft bill. Working together to write an improved bill in the House will provide a superior version to the Senate bill, which will face robust opposition in conference committee due to its unconscionable one-percent exemption. After a century of death and disease, the time for delay is past. Our board supports an immediate, unambiguous ban with research funding commensurate with the scope of the asbestos health epidemic today.

About

The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation composed of physicians, patients, and advocates dedicated to the eradication of diseases of the heart, lungs, and blood. PHLBI conducts innovative research to benefit future generations.
