Press Release

Congressman Pete King Honored By 9/11 Health Watch Organization

This month, I was honored by the 9/11 Health Watch organization for leading the fight to pass the Zadroga 9/11 Healthcare Act which will provide permanent monitoring and healthcare for police officers, firefighters, EMS and construction workers who have or will become ill from illnesses they incurred at Ground Zero. So far more than 33,000 of these workers are suffering from 9/11 illnesses, many of which are rare and deadly. Getting the 9/11 Healthcare bill enacted was a long, hard fight because of strong opposition from southern and western Congressmen who were very anti-New York. In the end the good guys won and the heroic Ground Zero workers will get the medical care and treatment they need and deserve. God Bless America!
