    Kaptur seeks federal help in bridge probe - By DAVID PATCH, Toledo Blade, OH
    And in remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives, Miss Kaptur said yesterday that she wants to know what state or federal inspections were conducted at the $220 million project site before the Feb. 16, 2004, accident that killed four members of Ironworkers Local 55 and injured four other men on the site.

    'These men died, in my view, because of the apparent willful negligence of the U.S. Department of Labor and OSHA,' she said, referring to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which last month reached a $280,000 settlement of workplace safety violations with Fru-Con Construction Corp., the project contractor.
