Press Release

Today, the Science/Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) of the World Trade Center Health Program voted to add certain types of cancers for coverage under the program. U.S. Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and Peter King (R-NY), authors of H.R. 847, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, lauded today's real progress toward inclusion of cancers under their legislation and issued the following joint statement:

"As House sponsors of the Zadroga Act, we wholeheartedly applaud the STAC's recommendation that cancers be covered under our legislation. Scientific evidence finally has caught up with what we've long known -- that the toxins from the collapse of the World Trade Center towers are linked directly to increased cancer rates among 9/11 responders and survivors. We are hopeful that Dr. Howard will adopt the Committee's conclusions and officially add cancer to the list of covered conditions."
