As NY Lawmakers Push for Zadroga Act Extension, RD Legal Funds Lagging Payouts
Cresskill, NJ: Three days before the thirteenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, federal lawmakers and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called for the reauthorization of the Zadroga Act. Later this month, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will introduce a bill requesting a 25 year extension (until 2041) into the U.S. Senate. Proponents of the extension, fearing it will meet with stiff opposition from Republicans, argue that the extension is not a New York issue, but a national issue as people came from all over the country to work on the Ground Zero clean up. Meanwhile, as payouts to qualified claimants lag, needy 9/11 heroes are going without necessary compensation.RD Legal Funding, LLC (“RD Legal”), through its expedited settlement funding program, can help provide funds immediately.
