*AS 9/11 HEALTH BILL APPROACHES A CRITICAL VOTE ON TUESDAY MAY 25TH *

*WE NEED YOU TO REACH OUT TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN OTHER STATES!!*

The 9/11 Health and Compensation Act (H.R. 847) will be voted on by the full
House Energy and Commerce Committee in a "markup" session that will be held
on Tuesday, May 25th. We all need the bill to emerge from this vote INTACT!

It is critical that the members of the Energy and Commerce Committee HEAR
FROM THEIR CONSTITUENTS, the people who live in their districts, urging them
to support for HR 847, the 9/11 health bill, and the bill's provisions that
provide specialized health care to survivors of 9/11 as well as to
responders, for 9/11-related illnesses.

We need you to reach out to any family and friends you may have who reside
in the districts of these Representatives. Ask them to please make a call on
MONDAY MAY 24 to urge their Representative to do the right thing when HR847
is considered by the Energy and Commerce Committee -- to pass the
legislation intact with a guarantee of care for both affected community
members and responders, and ensure that the Survivor Program -- which treats
residents, area workers and students affected by 9/11 -- is not harmed by
hostile amendments that could result in damaging cuts.

Below this message, we have pasted in a spreadsheet containing the names of
all of the members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, along with
the key cities/counties in their districts (to help people identify folks
who live in these districts), as well as their Washington DC office phone
numbers.

Since time is short, you may want to just phone your friends/family/contacts
and tell them to make the calls, but we also provide a Dear Friends letter
below you can paste into an email, along with a brief sample message for
your contacts to use when they call their Representative

Here is the Dear Friends letter:
-----------------------------------------------
Dear (name of your friend or relative in one of these districts)

I am writing to you to ask for your help in ensuring passage of an important
bill in Congress that will protect the health of tens of thousands of people
affected by the worst act of terror in our nation's history.

As you know, 9/11 was an attack on our nation that killed nearly 3000. What
you may not know is that thousands of people are now sick as a result of the
World Trade Center attacks from breathing in toxic fumes and dust that
resulted from the collapse and burning of the Twin Towers. Some of those
people were the brave responders who engaged in rescue and recovery
operations and some were people who lived, worked or attended school in the
densely populated area around the World Trade Center -- the civilians who
were targeted by the terrorists, and who then courageously rebuilt their
communities and their lives in the wake of the worst terrorist attack in US
history.

This Wednesday, May 26th, H.R. 847, the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act
will come up for a vote in the Energy and Commerce Committee of the House of
Representatives. If your Representative is included in the list below this
email, I am appealing to you to please call him/her at his/her Washington DC
office and urge their full support of the bill and its passage without any
damaging amendments.

Thank you for your much-needed help. If you want to call me for further
details I can be reached at _____.

Best,
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And here is a sample message for your contact(s) to use in calling their
Representative:

*Hello, I'm (your name). I live at (give your address, city, state and zip
code)

I am calling to urge Representative ____ to give his/her full support to HR
847, the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act which will be acted on by the
Energy and Commerce Committee shortly. This bill will provide ten years of
treatment for 9/11 related illnesses to survivors of the 9/11 terrorist
attacks -- downtown Manhattan residents, students and local workers -- as
well as to the brave responders who came to their rescue.

I urge you to oppose any amendments that would eliminate, diminish or
otherwise harm any element of the bill, but especially the Survivor Program.
9/11 was an attack on our nation that targeted civilians. Those who were
directly harmed as a result of the 9/11 attack deserve the right kind of
medical help, help that this bill will provide. Thank you *

THANK YOU!!!
