Over the last eight weeks, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) has remained a stakeholder passionately advocating on behalf of asbestos victims’ and American citizens’ rights in Congress. On Thursday, May 14, 2015, the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee will hold two markups: one on the TSCA Modernization Act Discussion Draft and one on the Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency (FACT) Act (H.R. 526). For more information on ADAO’s legislative positions on all seven bills, read our legislative overview here.
ADAO opposes the FACT Act. We remain a stakeholder at the table to improve the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015.
- The Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency (FACT) Act (H.R. 526)
- “Committee Releases Bipartisan TSCA Modernization Act, Markup This Week”
- TSCA Modernization Act of 2015 Discussion Draft and “The TSCA Modernization Act of 2015” Summary

Please be sure to watch and share our Message to President Obama: BAN ASBESTOS NOW – Video! This video was made at the 11th Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference and features five asbestos experts from the United States, Brazil, Finland, the Netherlands, and Australia, all giving compelling reasons to President Obama on why the U.S. should ban asbestos immediately.
