Letter to Editor: House bill delays action for asbestos victims

Dear Editor,

I am writing you today because I need your help to stop proposed legislation harmful to victims of asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Most importantly, this bill directly harms Missouri military veterans afflicted with these diseases.

HB 1645 not only harms working men, women and their families, but it is most harmful to Missouri military veterans.

HB 1645 will give asbestos companies that knowingly poisoned workers the ability to further delay and deny their accountability, and to force victims to disclose private and confidential medical information related to their diagnosis.

Missouri workers, veterans and their families deserve better.

Thank you for supporting Missouri workers!


Nancy Merrill-Sayed
