More on Environmental Exposures
–The Commissioner of Social Security shall determine whether individuals are environmental exposure affected individuals. Individuals are those who after ten years of exposure, develop asbestosis, mesothelioma or malignancies of the lung, colon, rectum, larynx, stomach, esophagus, pharynx, or ovary, or any other asbestos-related condition.
–A program is to be set up to screen for these conditions and advertise the availability of screenings. $23 million is available for 2010 through 2014, and $20 million for each 5-fiscal year period thereafter.
