CONGRESSMAN PASCRELL APPLAUDS ANNOUNCEMENT OF PROGRESS ON “9-11 BILL” TO AID WORLD TRADE CENTER RESPONDERS AND NEIGHBORS



Legislation scheduled to be reviewed and amended on Tuesday



WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-8) today released the following statement in reaction to the announcement that “The James Zadroga 9-11 Health and Compensation Act” is scheduled to be reviewed by the Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Tuesday, March 16.



“This is welcome progress in the effort to do the right thing by those who acted so selflessly in the aftermath of the horrible attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. I want to thank Congressman Pallone for his diligence and dedication in making sure this important legislation gets the attention it deserves from the U.S. Congress,” said Pascrell, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee who has been a staunch supporter of the legislation. “We now know that many 9-11 responders didn’t know they were casualties until months and years after that day. Just as there were heroes who gave their lives to save people on 9/11, there are rescue workers who survived that harrowing day, but ultimately gave their lives for their service to others. Heroes like James Zadroga, an NYPD officer who spent 450 hours participating in the recovery efforts at Ground Zero and isn’t with us today because he succumbed to respiratory disease a little more than four years after 9/11. I also want to recognize great individuals in this cause like John Feal, a first responder who was seriously injured during Ground Zero recovery efforts and started the Feal Good Foundation to bring awareness to the catastrophic health effects for those who responded to the call after 9/11. I want to applaud all these individuals because when we needed them most they were there for us as a nation and now they need us to stand up for them and today we take a step close to doing just that.”
