Asbestos Controversy in Troy New York.

Demolition of the Old Troy City Hall in Troy, New York has caused controversy regarding the asbestos discovered in the building.  It seems based on the news report it seems like they got caught doing demolition before removal.  The City Engineer says he is doing exploratory demolition and New York State Department of Labor approved it.  Is he looking for more asbestos?  When was this building built?  Have they sampled all 46 of the presumed and suspect asbestos materials that is on the New York State Industrial Code Rule 56 list?  These are just some of the questions I have regarding this demolition.  Additional reports have mentioned a limited asbestos survey.  Why is it limited?  What hasn't been sampled?
