9/11 Victim Compensation Fund: Still waiting after 15 years

Anna Sanders writes in the Staten Island Advance about the plight of “Group B” — those sick from 9/11 who have filed claims under last year’s reauthorization of the James L. Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.

Fifteen years after the attack, many recovery workers and survivors of the attack are sick, as are local residents and students. Many still await the decision of the federal Victim Compensation Fund.
