Abstract:

"The questions now are basically quantitative in nature: How many persons suffer from brown lung? To what degree are they disabled by the disease? How is the disease diagnosed? What will it cost to adequately compensate disabled workers and what is the best method of compensation? These are all legitimate questions which need to be thoroughly examined, and I hope this hearing will establish a record which can help provide the best answers. The South Carolina delegation in Washington, our Congressmen and two Senators have all been quite anxious and concerned. We see, for example, black lung recipients benefiting from the Federal program and if nothing less, we should certainly have a similar type consideration and support being given by the Government for brown lung"--Page 1.
