Trick question: EPA issued a ban of all asbestos containing materials in 1989. In 1991 this ban was overturned by the 5th judicial court of appeals out of New Orleans.

False

Uses of asbestos developed before 1989 are still allowed. Materials that use asbestos today undergo strict testing and have to be deemed environmentally safe.
