(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill intended to help sick Hanford nuclear reservation employees is considered dead for this legislative session, even after it passed easily in the House.  The bill would have given Hanford workers with certain illnesses the benefit of the doubt that they became sick from working at the toxic nuclear site when filing claims for worker compensation.  KING-5 reports the Republican-led Senate Labor, Commerce, and Sports Committee has chosen to not vote on the measure, meaning the bill is dead.
