The New York State Senate has unanimously approved new legislation (Bill S6398A) to assist New York’s law enforcement officers who have developed 9/11-related illnesses reports News 12 Westchester. The vote was 62-0.

The legislation would grant unlimited sick time to police officers who are currently working in county or village police departments. but who formerly worked for New York City and who have World Trade Center-related illnesses. These officers are currently losing insurance and jobs because they are not allowed sufficient sick time to cope with their illnesses.

The governor is said to support the bill.
