tl The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder December 18, 11175 Former pastor killed in mine "Legislation to make it easier for persons, who have Black Lung. and their widows to get their benefits has bm,n reported out by the House Education and Labor Committee," Congressman Ken Hechler, D-W.Va., stated. "I was glad to see the full Committee take prompt action on this bill and I hope the House and Senate will have the opportunity to vote on this before too long. We certainly didn't get all that was necessary, and I still feel that at 15-year preseumption rule would be fairer." Rep. Hechler said.

Surface workers and miners are also covered by this if they worked under equivalent dust conditions. If a miner, who worked 17 or more years, died from a mine accident by June 30, 1971, his survivors, such as the widows of the Farmington disaster, are eligible for benefits without having to provide medical information. Also in survivors' claims where medical evidence is not available, affidavits regarding the deceased miner's physical condition will be sufficient evidence that he was totally disabled from black lung or died from black lung. This bill also establishes a National Black Lung Disability Insurance Fund Financed by the coal operators, and makes this a permanent program. It provides that miners can find out while they are still working whether or not they can qualify for benefits. The Appeals Council cannot reverse a favorable hearing decision. The disability standards for deciding claims filed after tune 30. 1973. cannot be more strict than those used to decide claims filed before this date. It ends state workmen's compensation offsets on Federal black lung benefits unless the state benefits were paid for black lung. It establishes a permanent $10 million annual authorization for black lung clinics. If this bill becomes law, the Social Security Administration and Labor Department will automatically review all the claims which have been denied. Also these agencies must try to notify individuals who are likely to be eligible that they should apply. After you boil vegetables, save the left-over water for sauces, gravies or soups.
