Excerpt From: Get The FACTs

**The following is part of a greater article written by Gary Cohn for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog. Read the full text here.

Proposed Bill Set to Silence Mesothelioma Victims …

“We are the real people who matter in this debate, and yet the supporters of the FACT Act would not allow any of us to testify,” the letter said. “We may have been shut out of the hearings, but we will not be silenced.”

One of those who are speaking out is Courtney Davis of Durham, North Carolina, whose father Larry Davis died of mesothelioma in 2012. In an interview, she says that in many cases the FACT Act would make it difficult for asbestos victims to receive compensation or receive justice before they died. “These people don’t have a long time to live,” she says. “The people who are dying will never see those who essentially killed them punished. The timetable is just too short.”

If the FACT Act is adopted, she says, “The devastating consequences to the victims will go on forever.”
