In support of 9/11 Responder and Survivor Health Funding Correction Act:

“On September 11, 2001, while we saw the worst of humanity, we also saw the best of humanity as heroic first responders from the NYPD, FDNY, and the New York City Building Trades, stood side-by-side leading recovery efforts in the direct aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center. These selfless men and women deserve access to medical treatment and services for their September 11-related health conditions,” said Gary LaBarbera, President of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York. “We thank Congresswoman Maloney, Congressman Nadler, Congressman Garbarino, and Senator Gillibrand for their continued and exceptional leadership on behalf of September 11 responders and survivors, and urge Congress to pass the 9/11 Responder and Survivor Health Funding Correction Act immediately.”
