Senator Marco Rubio Announces Support for Zadroga Act Extension to Protect 9/11 Cancer Victims

By Hansen & Rosasco

In light of the recent ISIS attacks in Paris, and the strong likelihood that the United States will need it’s first responders to selflessly rescue and recover more American victims in the future after future attacks similar to 9/11, the need to pass the Zadroga Act re-authorization is more urgent than ever. Medical care for 9/11 responders has already expired. It is time that the House and Senate work out any legislative differences and allow the Zadroga Act Extension bill to come to the vote on the floor.

Why are Congressional Leaders Turning Their Back on Marci Simms and the 9/11 Zadroga Act?

By Hansen & Rosasco

So, I respectfully ask Speaker Ryan if he plans to support or oppose the current overwhelmingly bipartisan James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Re-authorization Act bill? Are the House Republicans an “opposition party or a proposition party” as he has promised?

9/11 Illnesses Effect Residents in all 50 States – Not Just New York

By Hansen & Rosasco

Sadly, more than 1,800 first responders and victims have died because of 9/11 related diseases. It is estimated that in the end, the number of people who die because of diseases related to working at ground zero will greatly surpass the victims of the attacks that day. Many of these first responders have since left New York and are now living scattered all throughout the United States. As the years passed by, many have developed coughs and other worrisome symptoms. They have been diagnosed with diseases, cancers, and non-curable illnesses – and many are unaware that this is directly attributed to the work they did on 9/11.
