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.
