LIBBY — A pilot program that provides medical and other services to victims of asbestos exposure has been expanded to 18 additional counties in Montana, Idaho and Washington.

The program offers home assistance, mileage reimbursements for medical travel and other benefits to people with asbestos-related diseases that have been linked to the closed W.R. Grace, Inc. vermiculite mine near Libby.

            W.R. Grace emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy yesterday, clearing the way after more than 12 years to pay out settlements to asbestos victims. DIL, why not interview the local law firm that is handling a boat load of the cases and ask them WHEN the payments will be forthcoming?

            80% is good. 100% would be better.
