Silver On Zadroga Signing
January 3rd, 2011

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver congratulated President Barack Obama for signing legislation that will provide health care to emergency responders and others who became sick after working at ground zero. Here is his statement:

“The United States has now met its moral obligation to the heroes of 9/11. By providing crucial care to the brave rescue workers who sacrificed their health for our country after we were attacked, as well as to the thousands of Downtown residents who became casualties of this tragedy, we as a nation now stand behind those who stood up for us.

I want to thank President Obama for signing this bill into law. It will literally save the lives of many of my neighbors, as well as those around the country who answered the call on 9/11.

I would also like to thank Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Congress members Jerrold Nadler, Carolyn Maloney, Anthony Weiner and the rest of our congressional delegation for their determined efforts to make sure the Zadroga bill became law and for never giving up the fight to deliver justice to the 9/11 heroes.”

    Many existing laws and regulations apply specifically to pregnant women. Several provisions of the Affordable Care Act offer new benefits for expecting mothers. Search online for “Wise Health Insurance” if you need affordable insurance for yourself or your wife.
