DU Bills in State Legislatures

2007 Bills and Resolutions on Depleted Uranium

More than 50 bills including the term "depleted uranium" were introduced in the States in 2007.  Most related to informing and screening military members and veterans for exposure to depleted uranium in combat. 

Much of the interest by the States has been generated by ongoing media coverage of the failings of the federal government with regards to emerging veterans health issues over the last four years, including environmental agents and exposures like Agent Orange and Gulf War Illness/Syndrome.

See the National Council on State Legislatures full 2007 report.  Those bills passed into law note the location as chaptered, resolutions as adopted.:
