New York, NY (PRWEB) October 11, 2007
Belluck & Fox strongly supports the U.S. Senate's unanimous passage of the "Ban Asbestos in America Act of 2007." For decades, corporations have sold asbestos without proper warnings. To this day, companies are still selling asbestos products, including roof cement available at many hardware stores in the United States. Because big business was unwilling to stop using asbestos, the United States Government stepped in and voted to ban asbestos in the United States. A companion bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives and we hope the House moves swiftly to pass its version of the bill.
Belluck & Fox applauds Senator Patty Murray for her determined efforts to ban asbestos. Sen. Murray first introduced this legislation six years ago and she has tirelessly pursued its passage ever since. We can only hope that once asbestos has been banned, the scourge of asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, will finally start to decline.
