N.Y. lawmakers push for 9/11 Heroes’ Bills in Albany

Three bills that would help the 9/11 community are being voted on today in Albany. Collectively known as the “9/11 Heroes’ Bills,” one concerns unlimited sick leave for all NYC workers sick from the September 11 terrorist attacks, one requests that more doctors be added to the NYC employees’ retirement system so that 9/11-related diagnoses can be made more quickly; the third asks the FDNY to classify certain cancers as site-related if they’re contracted by retirees within five years of retirement.
