Statement from Mayor de Blasio on World Trade Center Health Program Expiration Tonight

September 30, 2015

“Tonight at midnight, the World Trade Center  Health Program is set to expire – and, as it stands, Congress plans to let it.  That is unacceptable. Our first responders were there for us on 9/11 and every  day after – and we have a moral obligation to be there for them. ‎Congress must  stop putting politics ahead of our heroes’ health, immediately extend the  Zadroga Act – and ensure that our police officers, firefighters, medical  professionals, and all first responders and survivors receive the health care  and support they need and deserve.”
