Vice Chair Crowley Demands Action to Permanently Renew 9/11 Health Act

Crowley: “Our 9/11 heroes deserve more than just words – they deserve action.”

(Washington, D.C.) –Today, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx), Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus, delivered a speech on the House floor calling for immediate passage of a permanent extension of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. First enacted in 2011, the Zadroga Act provides assistance to the thousands of people who are now suffering from health issues as a result of their heroic actions on September 11th.  The Zadroga Act expired on September 30, and Crowley, along with many of his colleagues, is calling for a permanent extension to ensure 9/11 heroes are able to continue to receive the health care they need and deserve.
