December 9, 2010The Honorable Nancy PelosiSpeaker
of
the House
of
RepresentativesOffice
of
the Speaker
H-
232, The CapitolWashington, DC 20515Madam Speaker,We thank you for your steadfast leadership and commitment to the heroes
of
9111.
It is because
of
your unwavering support and direction that
HR
847, the
the James Zadroga
9/11
Health
and
Compensation Act,
passed the House
of
Representatives
on
September
29,2010,
on a strongbipartisan vote
of268
-160.The Senate is working to pass the companion legislation during the lame duck session
of
Congress. Senators Gillibrand and Schumer have been working hard to pass the bill and havecommitments from all 58 Democratic Senators as well as Republican Senator Mark Kirk to votefor the bill. Though we are hopeful that the efforts to pass the stand alone bill will succeed andthe bill will be signed into law by the President, we feel that we must seize every opportunitypossible to ensure that this bill become law.
As such, we request
that
you include
HR
847
as
partof
the must-pass 2001
and
2003 tax cut extensions bill that is moving throughCongress.
HR
847 will provide capped mandatory funding for the health programs that will treat thoseexposed to toxins released by the collapse
of
the World Trade Center towers. The funding wouldbe guaranteed and fully paid for. The programs funded by the bill provide medical monitoringand treatment
to
over 60,000 WTC responders, survivors, and national responders who camefrom all over the country, whose health has been impacted from exposures to toxins in or aroundthe WTC site in the aftermath
of
September
11
tho
We understand that every monthapproximately 200 more responders
or
survivors come forward seeking monitoring and
or
treatment.
If
we
do not pass this bill and create a steady funding stream, heroes who sacrificedtheir health to help others
in
the aftermath
of
the tragedy of9/11 will not receive the treatmentand monitoring they need and deserve and services
or
research that are needed would bethreatened or not provided.We thank you for your years
of
support for
HR
847 and for your commitment to the respondersand survivors who sacrificed their health in the aftermath
ofthe
tragedy
of9/11.
Sincerely,
