On March 27 Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker approved an asbestos bill that has been highly criticized by democrats and veterans, the Star Tribune reported.The asbestos bill was one of 30 bills signed by Gov. Walker in Milwaukee before he went to Las Vegas.
Under the new asbestos bill, people who have health problems due to accidental asbestos inhalation will be required to state the number of companies their lawyers are planning to hold liable. Furthermore, plaintiffs will first be forced to seek money from an asbestos fund before filing a claim in court.
According to Gov. Walker’s spokesperson Laurel Patrick, the new bill will prevent lawyers from making money by suing other companies they might think are liable, and funds can be made available for those who are suffering from illnesses caused by asbestos.
