asbestos fiberNCSL initiated the Asbestos Management Project in 1987 to respond to the growing concern regarding the development of state asbestos laws. The project tracks state programs and reports on innovative approaches states have undertaken to regulate asbestos hazards, and responds to legislative requests to analyze and discuss federal programs and policies as they affect the states. NCSL works closely with state program officials to provide better coordination among state programs and between the states and EPA.
