Reps. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and Peter King (R-NY), lead sponsors of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, today offered the following joint statement praising approval of the final rule which adds prostate cancer to the official List of WTC-Related Health Conditions:

"Today's decision by Dr. James Howard, WTC Health Program Administrator, to add prostate cancer to the list of covered conditions continues to fulfill the mission of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 to take care of injured and ill 9/11 responders and survivors who, a dozen years later, still suffer the effects of the toxins released at Ground Zero."
