White House recently rejects asbestos bill

On Tuesday, November 12, the White House rejected the Furthering Asbestos Claim Act (FACT), an asbestos bill that was highly supported by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

FACT aimed to set limits on asbestos trusts to file for bankruptcy. The White House rejected the bill because it would unfairly divulge the personal information of asbestos victims to the public.

The White House also said in a statement that the bill derived from the false claim that fraud is prevalent in the asbestos trust system.

Hollywood actor dies of mesothelioma

Famous American actor, Ed Lauter died Wednesday, October 16 after suffering from malignant pleural mesothelioma. The 74-year-old actor achieved Hollywood notoriety from his roles in Charlie’s Angels, The Longest Yard, The Artist, and many other films.

From his diagnosis, doctors suspect that Lauter had been exposed to asbestos when he was much younger. Patients diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma typically have a 6-18 month life expectancy.
