Voted YES on early retirement for MWRA-work-related cancer

Massachusetts Democratic Party Platform indicates voting YES in Part X: Worker Rights:Occupational Safety. [State Rep. Walsh voted YES].

Gov. Romney vetoed budget section 673, which says: "A person who has [worked] at least 10 years in the employment of the Massachusetts Water and Resources Administration; who, in the course of his state employment was exposed to asbestos or other hazardous materials; and who has been diagnosed with an cancer or cardio-vascular illness, shall be eligible for early retirement with surviving spouse benefits." [A YEA vote would override the veto and fund the early retirement arrangement.]

The relevant part of the MassDems Platform is: "We support environmental Right-to-Know laws about chemical and other potential dangers to worker health. We oppose efforts to weaken workplace safety standards, or the ability of OSHA or state-level agencies to enforce them."
