Subject: [CPEO-MEF] HEALTH, BERYLLIUM: Senator wants Kansas City (MO) plant study
Bond calls for new study on toxins at KC defense plant

Kansas City Star
February 3, 2010

U.S. Sen. Kit Bond on Wednesday called for a new federal investigation of health concerns at a sensitive Kansas City defense plant.

In a letter to a federal investigator, Bond noted that he was responding to reports on KSHB-TV that more than 100 former co-workers at the federal complex on Bannister Road fear their illnesses may be linked to toxins at the facility.

Bond asked the inspector general for the General Services Administration, which acts as the federal government's landlord, to advise him on "the full extent of the problem and what steps GSA is taking to protect employees deemed at risk."
