Sunday: 9/11 Responders Will Urge Dysfunctional Congress to Stop Fighting and Pass 9/11 Health Bill



A coalition of World Trade Center responders, including the FealGood Foundation and other 9/11 organizations, will gather near Ground Zero this Sunday to demand that Congress stop the bickering and partisan fighting and finally pass H.R. 847, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. Democrats need to get the bill on the House floor under normal rules so it can pass with a simple majority, and Republicans need to promise they won't use the rules to play political tricks with the vote. Peoples lives are at stake!



On Sunday, the group of 9/11 responders will also announce that they plan to travel to DC to be there when Congress gets back from its overlong six-week vacation to remind the politicians that people are sick and dying and Washington needs to take action.



WHO: John Feal, FealGood Foundation, 9/11 organizations representing the FDNY & NYPD, others TBA



WHAT: Press Conference



WHEN: Sunday, August 1st, 12:00 PM



WHERE: Ground Zero

Plaza at 7 World Trade Center

Greenwich and Vesey Streets
