Uranium Workers Compensation Program
In a bipartisan effort, legislative actions are underway to expand the compensation for the government-sponsored Uranium Workers compensation program. This will help to ensure that more uranium miners, millers, and transporters receive the financial compensation due to them as a result of acquiring certain illnesses because of their exposure to uranium during the Cold War’s nuclear arms race.
Possible future amendments to regulations governing the Uranium Workers program include the following:
