Standing Up for New York
Carolyn Maloney works tirelessly to ensure that New York's recovery from 9/11 is complete - and that both the city and our nation emerge stronger than before.
- The 9/11 Commission Caucus, was founded by Carolyn along with Rep. Christopher Shays (CT-04) after the 9/11 commission released its final report. The Caucus' goal is to enact each of the Commission's 41 recommendations into law.
- The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act (HR 847) The Zadroga Act provides health care for first responders who are struggling with disease after breathing in toxins and carcinogens in the rubble of the Twin Towers. They are suffering deadly illnesses as a direct result of their heroism in a time of national crisis. As the primary sponsor of this act in the House, Carolyn fought to help our first responders afford treatment for physical injuries or respiratory disease – and then she kept fighting until HR 847 provided for cancer treatment as well.
