Sponsors of 9/11 Health bill react to

today’s Mt. Sinai study on

9/11 responders’ cancer rates



WASHINGTON, DC – Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Peter King (R-NY), and Michael McMahon (D-NY), issued a joint statement reacting to today’s Mt. Sinai School of Medicine study which shows increases in multiple myeloma among 9/11 first responders under 45 years of age.



“The fact that the authors of this cancer study say the results are inconclusive only reinforces the urgent need for an established, long-term monitoring program for 9/11 responders and treatment for illnesses that result from exposure to toxins at Ground Zero. We need to act now to put in place a strong permanent program to protect the health of our brave responders and community members.”



The four members of Congress are the lead sponsors of the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act (H.R. 847), which would provide long-term, comprehensive health care and compensation for those sickened or injured in the aftermath of 9/11. It passed the House Judiciary Committee in late July; the House Energy and Commerce Committee is expected to take up the bill in September.
