Congressman Murphy Statement on 9/11 First Responders Health Care Bill Passing House

Press Release

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Scott Murphy (NY-20) today released the following statement in response to the House passing legislation to provide health benefits for 9/11 first responders:

"It should not have taken this long for us to provide health care for those brave first responders and workers that risked their lives during the aftermath of 9/11. By covering the more than 50,000 responders and survivors, we continue our commitment to protect those that protect us."

The James Zadroga 9-11 Health and Compensation Act provides funding for a health initiative to monitor and treat responders and community residents for health conditions related to the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks and compensation for those physically injured by those attacks or by response activities and debris removal. This bipartisan legislation is sponsored by Representatives Carolyn Maloney (NY-14), Jerrold Nadler (NY-08) and Peter King (NY-03).
