Albany, NY – The health and welfare of thousands of 9/11 heroes is in jeopardy as a deadline on 9/11 aid programs approaches. Authorization for these vital benefits runs out at midnight. We cannot allow members of Congress to turn their backs on the brave men and women who risked their own lives on that horrific day, and the men and women who were injured or became ill after being exposed to toxins at Ground Zero.
