Statement of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on President Obama’s Signature of the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act into Law

January 3, 2011
“I want to thank President Obama for signing the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act into law. The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were an attack on America by a foreign enemy, and addressing its health impacts is a national duty. The tenth anniversary of the attacks is later this year and I am encouraged that our elected representatives in Washington came together and stood by those who were there for America in its hour of greatest need. In addition to President Obama, I want to thank all of those involved in the passage of this bill, especially Senators Schumer and Gillibrand; and Representatives Maloney, King, and Nadler.”
