Labor and Political Leaders to Call for Passage
of 9/11 Health and Compensation Act
-Nine Years is Long Enough!-

PRESS CONFERENCE
Wednesday, September 8th
10:00 a.m.
In front of 7 World Trade Center
West Broadway, Between Barclay and Vesey Streets

WHO: The New York State AFL-CIO; the New York City Central Labor Council; Steve Cassidy, President of the Uniformed Firefighters Association; Richard Alles, Uniformed Fire Officers Association; George Miranda, President of Teamsters Joint Council 16; Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney; Congressman Jerrold Nadler; Congressman Peter King; Congressman Charles Rangel; Joseph Zadroga; John Feal of the FealGood Foundation; and 9/11 first responders and survivors of the attacks.

WHAT: Labor and political leaders are joining together to call for both the House and Senate to pass HR. 847 and S.1334, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, soon after Congress reconvenes on September 14th.

WHY: Over 20,000 9/11 responders and survivors are documented sick from their exposures to Ground Zero toxins. We need a permanent comprehensive program to provide them long term care, monitoring and compensation for their economic losses.

The 9/11 Health and Compensation Act would:

► Provide medical monitoring and treatment to WTC responders and survivors (area workers, residents, students) who were exposed to the toxins at Ground Zero.

► Build on the existing monitoring and treatment program by delivering expert medical treatment for these unique exposures at Centers of Excellence.

► Reopen the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) to provide compensation for economic losses and harm as an alternative to the current litigation system.

► Provide liability protections for the WTC Contractors and the City of New York.
