UNITED STATES CONGRESS

Press Release

Reps. Nadler and Maloney React to Resignation of Christine LaSala from WTC Captive Insurance Company

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, January 9, 2008

CONTACT: Shin Inouye (Nadler), 202-225-5635

Joe Soldevere (Maloney), 212-860-0606

WASHINGTON, D.C. Representatives Jerrold Nadler (NY-08) and Carolyn Maloney (NY-14) today issued the following on the announcement that Christine LaSala will step down as President of the WTC Captive Insurance Company:

Anyone who is proud of the fact that the Fund has more money now than when it first started fundamentally misunderstands its purpose, said Congressman Nadler. The funds were provided to help workers who continue to suffer because of their exposure at Ground Zero, without bankrupting the City and contractors. While Ms. LaSala protected the City and contractors, she clearly failed to help the workers. I strongly encourage the Captive Board to select a new president that will fulfill the Funds original intent and mandate.

Sick 9/11 workers have filed thousands of claims against the Captive over the last three years, and I'm sure that many -if not most- of these claims are valid. If the Captive is going to continue its blanket refusal of these claims, itd be cheaper for them just to buy a rubber stamp than replace Ms. LaSala, said Congresswoman Maloney. The millions Ms. LaSala spent on overhead during her tenure could have done a world of good for suffering 9/11 heroes.
