LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — A federal advisory panel has approved a petition that will expand the number of sick Los Alamos National Laboratory workers who will be eligible to receive compensation.

The petition next requires the approval of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

The Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health approved a petition that provides coverage to workers who developed radiogenic cancers after having been employed for at least 250 days at the laboratory between March 15, 1943, and Dec. 31, 1975.

Members of New Mexico's congressional delegation say Thursday's decision eliminates a requirement for affected employees to prove where they worked at the facility to qualify for compensation.
