Asbestos Victims Urge Congress to Reject the FACT Act

Have you been keeping up with the so-called FACT (Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency) Act? Veterans, first responders, teachers, and many more are urging lawmakers to reject the bill that would require the sharing of private information of victims and their families.

Who is affected by the FACT Act?

The so-called Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency (FACT) Act is a bill created by and for the companies within the asbestos industry. The bill is financially backed by the makers of asbestos products that continue to destroy the lives of thousands of innocent individuals each year, and their lobbyists. The fact is that the FACT Act does everything to help the asbestos industry, and nothing to help victims of asbestos exposure.

Asbestos Lobbyists are Top Contributors to the FACT Act

The so-called FACT (Furthering Asbestos Claims Transparency) Act, which continues to make its way through Congress, is a serious threat to the privacy and justice of asbestos exposure victims. While the bill is opposed by numerous veterans groups, it is both supported and funded by asbestos lobbyists.

Who Really Benefits from the FACT Act?

Introduced in 2013, the deceptively-named Furthering Asbestos Claims Transparency (FACT) Act continues to make its way through Congress. While the insurers and companies that use asbestos advocate for more "transparency" in asbestos litigation, the victims of exposure are fighting for their lives and their loved ones.
