 James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act 
, legislation we authored to providecare for the more than36,000 Americans who are sick or injured as a direct result of theterroristattacksof September  11, 2001.Thank you for your efforts to bring this bill before the House for another vote.It is our strong belief that caring for 9/11 first responders and survivors is not just a NewYork issue.Those who are suffering hail from all 50 states and 428 of the 435Congressional districts nationwide. Nearly every member of theHouse has constituentsfor whom the 9/11 attacks are not history, but an ongoing nightmare that is slowlyrobbing them of their health, their strength, and, in the worst cases, their lives.We know you will agree that the debate on the House floor tomorrow should respect andhonor the sacrifices so many made on behalf of our country during one of America’sdarkest hours. Accordingly, we know we can count on you to urge our colleagues on both sides of the aisle to have a debate that focuses on our national obligation to theliving victims of 9/11, and not to try to use the proceedings for political gain.Again, we thank you for your attention to this issue and your support for those who arestill suffering because of the attacks on our nation.Sincerely,
CAROLYN B. MALONEYJERROLD NADLEMember of CongressMember of Congress
