WHAT: News conference demanding that President Bush restart program to provide health care and medical monitoring to 9/11 responders nationwide

WHY: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services abruptly halted a request for proposals to provide care for thousands of Americans from outside the tri-state area who are sick or injured as a result of the 9/11 attacks. At a House field hearing earlier this week, witnesses testified that this decision is threatening funding for the six NYC-area 9/11 health clinics, and that in as little as two months, health care for many 9/11 responders nationwide will no longer be available in their own communities.



9/11 responders from around the country will sit in the gallery for President Bushs State of the Union Address to highlight their struggle to get the health care they need and deserve. In particular, the responders will urge the Administration to include sufficient 9/11 health funding in its FY 2009 budget proposal
