Join IAVA, 9/11 first responders and survivors to call congressional leaders to extend and fully fund the Zadroga Act by year's end.
As Congress wraps-up its work for the year, time is running out to renew and fully fund programs that provide health care and compensation to 9/11 first responders and survivors. Despite widespread bipartisan support including 259 sponsors in the House and 66 in the Senate, Congressional leaders have failed to bring the reauthorization bill to a vote. As a result of their inaction, tens of thousands of men and women from all 50 states and 433 of 435 congressional districts have been forced to live in fear that the programs on which their lives depend will be torn away from them and their families.
Join IAVA, veterans, 9/11 first responders and survivors to call congressional leaders to extend and fully fund the Zadroga Act by year's end. We'll meet on Capitol Hill Thursday, December 3, 2015 to call on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan to extend and fully fund the bipartisan James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act by year’s end.
