Press Conference Announcing Legislation To Renew James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act

April 14, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

At 11:00am on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, a bipartisan group of Senate and House lawmakers will be joined by labor leaders, advocates, and 9/11 first responders and survivors to announce introduction of legislation renewing and extending the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation programs set to expire this Congress.

After nearly a decade-long fight to stand by those who answered the call of duty on September 11th, Congress finally fulfilled its moral obligation in late 2010 and provided 9/11 rescue and recovery workers with the health care and financial compensation they deserve by passing the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.

The Zadroga bill’s two critical programs are going to expire in October 2015 and October 2016.

Nearly 14 years after September 11th, 9/11 survivors and rescue and recovery workers are facing serious health issues resulting from the toxins at the World Trade Center site. More than 33,000 9/11 responders, as well as survivors of the attacks and area residents and workers, have an illness or injury caused by the attacks or their aftermath, and over two-thirds of those have more than one illness. So far, 3,900 cancers have been found among 9/11 responders and survivors, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control.

Participants enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program for treatment currently reside in 429 of the 435 Congressional districts in the country.
