The North Carolina News Network - Navy OKs LeJeune Study
Written by Bruce Ferrell/David Horn
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- Sen. Kay Hagan is applauding the move by the Navy to fund studies into the possible health impacts of contaminated water at Camp LeJeune. Hagan commented on the news that funding was moving forward.
"I was happy to hear from Ray Mabus, the Secretary of the Navy, that they have approved all of the studies that we've requested and that the funding has been sent to the CDC to begin those studies," said Hagan.
The other North Carolina member of the Senate, Richard Burr, had blocked the appointment of two top Navy officials until he received assurances the studies would be done.
