Washington, D.C. -- U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will be joined by Senators Charles E. Schumer, Frank R. Lautenberg, and Robert Menendez and Representatives Carolyn Maloney, Jerrold Nadler, Peter King and Michael McMahon, along with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and 9/11 first responders, construction workers, clean-up workers and community members who have suffered from the long term health effects of working at Ground Zero to introduce the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act -- the first comprehensive 9/11 health legislation to ever be introduced in the U.S. Senate.
Thousands were lost on the morning of September 11, 2001, but today, thousands more -- including first responders, area residents, workers, students and others -- are sick and getting sicker from exposure to toxins released from the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers.
The 9/11 Health and Compensation Act would ensure proper monitoring and treatment for the innocent men, women and children that face life-threatening health effects due to the toxins released at Ground Zero in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
WHO: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
