MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Despite opposition from Democrats and some veterans groups, legislation dealing with asbestos-related lawsuits is on its way to Governor Scott Walker.

The bill passed the Assembly Thursday on a partisan 55-38 vote.

Under the bill, cancer victims suing an existing company would have to disclose whether they have also filed a claim with any of asbestos compensation trust funds.
