We’ve been keeping a close eye on the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, created five years ago to cover health care costs for 9/11 first responders, which has already expired. The law, which managed to overcome Republican objections in 2010, needed to be reauthorized two months ago, but GOP leaders largely ignored it. The measure was then supposed to be included in a recent transportation bill, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) stripped the Zadroga provisions from the larger package.Posted on December 21, 2015

Dear Friends, supporters and Fellow Responders,
As many of you know, the October 3rd deadline to register for the Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) has passed. Hopefully all of you who registered are eligible to receive compensation. With the Oct 3rd deadline passed, the FealGood Foundation has made a significant change as we are headed into year three of the Zadroga Bill (HR 847).
