On March 7, 2018, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee signed into law the most comprehensive legislation designed to provide Hanford nuclear site workers with one of the best medical compensation programs in the nation.
Hanford Challenge was invited to testify in Olympia on January 10, 2018 at the Public Hearing for Senate Bill 5940, which would create a presumption of certain occupational diseases for Hanford workers. Thus, making it easier for workers to receive the compensation they deserve.
