City Council Passes Resolution Supporting 9/11 Health and Compensation Act
December 23, 2009

The New York City Council passed a resolution in December urging Congress to amend and pass the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. Now pending before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the legislation would provide long-term medical monitoring and treatment of people exposed to the World Trade Center attacks.

The resolution calls on Congress to reduce New York City’s cost share under the Act, and to consider adding cancer and certain other illnesses as covered conditions under the legislation.
