President Obama Signs James Zadroga 9/11 Act Today


President Obama today signed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 while vacationing in Hawaii.

For many 9/11 victims and their families, it was a long and painful road to this most deserving day. Some did not make it – and we mourn them and their sacrifice.

However, many 9/11 first responders, survivors, volunteers, construction workers and clean-up workers will now get the medical treatment and compensation they need so badly due to the Zadroga 9/11 Act and for this we are all grateful.

Thanks to all the the unstoppable supporters of the Zadroga bill. Thanks to James Zadroga and his family – and all heroes like him.
