ADAO Celebrates Introduction of Fifth Annual Senate Resolution that Establishes “National Asbestos Awareness Week”; Senator Max Baucus Praised for Leadership in Introducing Resolution that Increases Awareness of Asbestos Dangers

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), the leading organization serving as the voice of asbestos victims, today celebrates the introduction of S.RES.57, a resolution that declares the first week of April as "National Asbestos Awareness Week" and urges the Surgeon General to warn and educate Americans on the severe hazards of asbestos exposure.

ADAO praises Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) for his work in introducing the important resolution. Additional cosponsors and key supporters of S.RES.57 include: Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL), Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA), Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT).

"We applaud Senator Max Baucus and the cosponsors of S.RES.57 for their leadership and support in successfully introducing this significant resolution that declares the first week of April as National Asbestos Awareness Week," said Linda Reinstein, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization. "Since 2005, ADAO has worked with the Senate to raise awareness through the passage of asbestos awareness resolutions. We continue to honor individuals and their families who have suffered from diseases caused by asbestos exposure through our efforts to increase awareness and prevention. ADAO will continue to work with Congress to educate Americans until we finally ban the deadly fibers once and for all."

ADAO will hold its fifth annual Asbestos Awareness Conference and Remembrance Brunch at Marriott Manhattan Beach on March 27-29 in Manhattan Beach, California in recognition of National Asbestos Awareness Week.
