“The members of the United States House of Representatives, who voted against the Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, have turned their back on those who came to America’s assistance on, and immediately after, our Nation’s darkest day.

“The legislation, advocated by Senator Eric Adams and Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries, signed by Governor David Paterson today, only adds to the decay of New York’s public safety policy. We first saw it with the Drug Dealer Protection Act and then with an increase in the release of violent felons. Now, they are asking the Police Department to fight crime with one arm tied behind their back.
