Legislative Update
On March 3, 2020, 19 Attorneys General sent a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer urging prompt floor action on the Alan Reinstein Ban Asbestos Now Act. Last month on World Cancer Day, ADAO released a letter signed by nearly forty leading scientists in support of the ARBAN. The letter to Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer calls for immediate passage of the bill. It built on the January 16 ARBAN joint support letter to Speaker Pelosi from AFL-CIO, APHA, and many others reiterating that there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos. In more recent news, on February 27, ADAO sent a joint letter to EPA Administrator Wheeler regarding legacy asbestos which was signed by 17 organizations. We are continuing to build momentum and garner support for ARBAN, and we are excited to share some news on the subject soon!
