>> I AM GENE GRANT BACK AT THE TABLE WITH THIS WEEK'S LINE OPINION PANELISTS. SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN IS RUNNING A SERIES ON THE LONG-TERM HEALTH CONCERNS OF PEOPLE NEAR THE TRINITY SITE WHEN THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB TESTED IN NEW MEXICO 70 YEARS AGO. RESIDENTS AND VISITORS IN AREA SAY THEY AND THEIR LOVED ONES HAVE SUFFERED FOR YEARS WITHOUT RECOGNITION FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME WE HEARD CALLS FOR RECOGNITION AND MORE RESEARCH. WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH GOING ON NOW BUT IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET THERE. SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN PIECE WAS JUST SUCH A HEART BREAKER. I MEAN IT WAS NOT LIKE A RANDOM PERSON HERE OR THERE. WE ARE TALKING ALMOST ENTIRE FAMILIES COMING UP WITH SOME FORM OF CANCER, JUST A TERRIBLE THING. MY FIRST QUESTION, WHAT IS IT ABOUT INSTITUTIONS THAT -- THERE IS NO ANSWER TO THIS, BUT JUST TO GET IT OUT THERE -- THEY CANNOT JUST STEP BACK FROM ITSELF AND SAY, LOOK, WE SCREWED UP. WE OWE AN APOLOGY, IF NOT MONEY. WHY DOES IT TAKE SO MANY YEARS FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO SAY, WE ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT IS CLEAR TO EVERYBODY ELSE? >> THIS IS NOT LIMITED TO SCIENTIFIC, MEDICAL, ET CETERA. THERE ARE MANY COMMUNITIES IN THIS COUNTRY THAT HAVE WAITED A VERY LONG TIME TO HEAR WE SCREWED UP. I THINK THAT FROM A LIABILITY PERSPECTIVE, THERE IS CONCERN THAT YOU ARE CREATING LIABILITY FOR YOURSELF BUT YOU'RE THE GOVERNMENT. YOU GET TO DECIDE WHO SUES YOU ANYWAY. SO, YOU KNOW, I THINK THERE CAN ALSO BE A HESITANCY TO ACKNOWLEDGE FAULT FOR SOMETHING THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW WAS GOING TO BE A PROBLEM. AND SCIENCE HAS PROGRESSED, THANK GOODNESS, QUITE A BIT SINCE THE TIME OF THE TESTING. AND, SO, YOU KNOW, I THINK IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOME REMARKABLE SENSITIVITY AND THOUGHTFULNESS, UNFORTUNATELY, TO LOOK AT THAT SITUATION AND SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT, WE DIDN'T KNOW THEN OR HERE IS WHAT WE DID KNOW THEN. WE FAILED YOU AS A COMMUNITY, YOU KNOW, PERHAPS ACKNOWLEDGING THAT THIS IS THE BEST WE HAD AT THE TIME. BUT IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO GO FORWARD, ACKNOWLEDGE THE HARM THAT WAS DONE TO THE COMMUNITY. FIRST OF ALL, STUDY THE HARM THAT WAS DONE AND THAT HAS BEEN DELAYED. ACKNOWLEDGE THAT HARM, IF IT IS THERE, AND SEEK TO MAKE THINGS BETTER. AND WE'RE IN THAT FIRST STEP RIGHT NOW. >> SENATOR, CAN YOU TOUCH ON THAT? WHAT IS IT ABOUT INSTITUTIONS, YOU HAD TO TOIL WITH ONE FOR A LONG TIME, HARD TO COME TO AGREEMENT LIKE THAT. WHY IS THAT? PEOPLE ARE OWED SOMETHING HERE. WE SAW THIS HAPPEN IN GRANTS AREA, WITH URANIUM MINING. IT TOOK YEARS FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT WAS A PROBLEM OUT THERE. WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT? IT IS INTERESTING. >> WELL, YOU HAVE DIFFERENT INTERESTS, DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS AND DIFFERENT CONSTITUENTS AND GATHERING EVERYBODY TOGETHER AND DEVELOPING CONSENSUS ISN'T EASY. ACTUALLY, CONGRESS HAS ACTED ON THIS. SO, THERE WERE 200 TESTS FROM 1945 TO 1962 AND SUITS WERE DISMISSED BY THE COURT, SO, THE CONGRESS IN 1990 PASSED THE RADIATION EXPOSURE COMPENSATION ACT. AND IT...
