Statement From Mayor de Blasio on Congressional Approval of Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Programs

December 18, 2015

“Today, Congress finally committed to giving our 9/11 first responders and survivors the peace of mind they deserve, and the health care and support they need. This is a long-overdue victory for the 72,000 brave men and women around the country who rely on these programs. In particular, we’re grateful to Senators Gillibrand and Schumer, Reps. Maloney, Nadler, Donovan, and King, and our whole delegation for their leadership.”
