Austin woman sickened in 9/11 bewildered by holdup of health funding

On December 15, 2015, Mary Ann Roser of the Texas newspaper, the American-Statesman, wrote about Sarah Scott, who was general counsel to the New York City medical examiner’s office on September 11, 2001, and who now suffers from the rare autoimmune disease sarcoidosis. Scott talks of her bewilderment that Congress is being so petty over such a critical issue as the renewal of the Zadroga Act.

“Do you have to be dead for them to honor their memory?” she asks.
