Families of first responders who died from 9/11-related illnesses would benefit under Missouri bill

A piece of proposed legislation by a Missouri representative could help those residents of the state who have died from World Trade Center-related illness by refunding their families the state tax they paid for the year of their death and the three years before the death.

The proposed bill, HB 1771, the Christopher J. Bosche Memorial Act, was proposed by Missouri State Representative Brenda Shields. It is named for a Missouri doctor who died of site-related illness while serving with Missouri Task Force 1.

According to Rep. Shields, 63 recovery workers from Missouri are sick and three have died, including Bosche, reports Jeff Bernthal of Fox News.

The proposed bill can be read here.
