Has Your Member of Congress Forgotten 9/11?

As of midnight, September 30, 2015, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act expired. The expiration means that the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund and the WTC Health Program will not be funded beyond October 2016. Does Congress truly intend to abandon thousands of 9/11 responders and survivors who served our country valiantly in the wake of the devastating terrorists attacks? They were there for us. Shouldn’t we be there for them?

As of early October, HR. 1786, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act, had 197 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives. Check the list below to see if your representative is among them:

If your representative is not listed here, contact their congressional office to ask why not. If they have forgotten 9/11, tell them that you still remember, and that you’ll remember their vote on Election Day 2016.
