9/11 first responders push Cuomo to sign pension bill

Governor Cuomo is being pressured to sign a bill that would expand the World Trade Center Disability Law to include non-uniformed personnel. Then non-uniformed city employees who are sick due to their work at the World Trade Center site after the 9/11 terrorist attacks could have better benefits.

Civil engineers, transit workers and other people required to spend time at the recovery efforts are not covered by the same laws that help firefighters and police officers, reports Bernadette Hogan for theĀ NY Post.

The bill passed the NYS Legislature earlier this summer, but has yet to be signed into law by the governor.

The governor has claimed not to have seen the bill yet.
