First Responders Heading to DC to Rally for Permanent Extension of Zadroga Act

CBS New York posted an article on November 17, 2015 about sick recovery workers from the World Trade Center rallying in Washington today in favor of a permanent extension of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which Congress allowed to expire two months ago. This is one of the many rallies that survivors and rescue and recovery workers have endured in an attempt to continue their health coverage.

“I don’t know how long I’m going to be around,” said FDNY Captain Christopher King. “I don’t want to leave my kids in debt.”
