After $140 billion is gone asbestos will come right back to state courts, say Democrats

Senate Democrats opposing the trust fund think the fund is, well, underfunded and that it will run out of money and not do what it is supposed to do: keep asbestos cases out of the courts. Discounting the fact that they have received large amounts of money from the plaintiff's bar, they may actually be right. Even some Republicans are concerned about the fund's solvency, though they think it's insolvent because the standards are too lax rather than the fund too small.

  • Very nice work on your blog, It was fun to read! I am still not done reading everything, but I bookmarked you! I really like reading about asbestos and even created a asbestos blog of my own if you are interested!
