Tax on foreign insurers could pay for 9/11 health bill (Zadroga Act)

Brian Tumulty of the Lower Hudson Journal News wrote on November 17, 2015 that the permanent extension of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act could possibly be financed by closing a tax loophole that  allows foreign insurance companies to issue reinsurance in the United States without paying the same taxes as their U.S. competitors.

Congress allowed Zadroga to expire on October 1, 2015, leaving sick recovery workers stressed and anxious about funds for their illnesses running out.
