Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Tallevast beryllium workers
Tallevast workers spur action

Bradenton Herald (FL)

Once again former Loral American Beryllium Co. employees have prompted
federal government action.

And once again their efforts may aid beryllium workers nationwide.

The Department of Energy has expanded a health care benefits program to
cover all employees who worked at the Tallevast plant from 1967 to 1992,
Sen. Bill Nelson announced Friday. The expansion increased the covered
years for the benefits program from 12 to 25 years.

"I am proud that we were able to put together the staff with the unique
skills needed to make this a success," said John Shaw, DOE's assistant
secretary for environment, safety and health.
