Find out if your member of Congress co-sponsored the 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act, HR. 1786/ S. 928.

Not sure who your representatives are? Type in your home address below and we will automatically match you with your representative and both of your senators. Or, you can click on the buttons below to browse complete lists of all members of Congress and who co-sponsored the renewal of the 9/11 Health and Compensation Law if they were in Congress in 2015.

Why you should know if your Member of Congress cosponsored the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act, HR. 1786/ S. 928.

There are over 38,000 9/11 responders and survivors that have at least one injury from 9/11, including thousands who have multiple, chronic and disabling illnesses from their exposures to the toxins at Ground Zero. So far, over 5,600 have been diagnosed with cancer from their 9/11 exposures. Sadly, thousands more cases are expected.

In 2010, after years of delays, Washington finally took action to provide medical treatment and monitoring as well as economic compensation to those injured at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and the Shanksville crash site. Five years later the Congress, after letting the law begin to expire, passed and the President signed into law a renewal of the programs that will continue helping responders and survivors in every state and in 433 of 435 Congressional Districts.

In 2015, out of 435 members of the US House of Representatives, 272 supported injured and ill 911 responders and co-sponsored the legislation, 80 Republicans and all 192 Democrats, in the Senate out of the 100 Senators, 69 cosponsored the legislation 23 Republicans and all 46 Democratic Senators.

These members didn’t just say we should “Remember 9/11,” they took action.

Because of their overwhelming bipartisan support, the Congress passed a new law that made the World Trade Center Health Program permanent so that injured responders and survivors can get the health care that they need and extends the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund for another 5 years and provides more funding for it so that those injured can get the full help they need.

If you are a 9/11 responder and or survivor, you should know who actually supported you by co-sponsoring the legislation and not just empty rhetoric.

Here’s how it works

Type in your address above and we will tell you who represents you in Congress; and if they were in Congress in 2015 whether they cosponsored the bill; if they were in Congress then, how they voted on the original Zadroga Act in 2010; and the number of 9/11 responders and survivors they represent who will be able to continue their medical care and get the help they need because they co-sponsored the renewal of the law and fought for it.

Most importantly, if they were not cosponsors of the legislation to reauthorize the law (HR. 1786/ S 928) but were in Congress at that time we will tell you what they have said about 9/11 in the past, and you can match their words against their lack of action.

We can also help connect you on the phone directly to their office in Washington so if you have not already done so you can call and thank them if they cosponsored the bill and tell them how much you appreciate their support for injured 9/11 responders and survivors.

If they did not cosponsor the bill or if they are new to Congress, you can let them know that you live in their district and will be looking for their help in 2020 when the Compensation Program needs to be renewed.

You can also tweet to thank them for co-sponsoring the legislation.

Footnotes

(1) Footnote on cosponsoring of HR. 1786 S. 928 in 2015 by of Members of Congress. Whether a Member of Congress was a cosponsor of the legislation comes from the Library of Congress:

(2) Footnote for U.S. House of Representatives Voting Record from 2010.

In the House of Representatives there were three floor votes in 2010 taken by the full House. The Table above reflects the total of the three votes. If a member voted for the legislation either the second or the third time they are marked as voting “Yes”, if they voted no and opposed the legislation they are marked as “No”. If they were not in Congress that year they are marked as “Not in Congress”.

The first attempt at House Passage (Roll #491) on July 29, 2010, was an attempt to achieve passage using an expedited procedure called “Suspension of the Rules” that requires an affirmative two-thirds vote for passage and is used by the House to vote on non-controversial legislation. While the vote was 255-159 in favor, the bill failed to get the required two-thirds affirmative vote of those present and was not passed.

The second attempt at House passage was successful. Using regular House procedures, on September 29, 2010 the legislation was brought to the full House, was passed and sent to the Senate with an overwhelming majority vote of 268-160 (Roll #550).

The final vote in the House of Representatives was on December 22, 2010. This vote was on final passage of the legislation and agreeing to changes made by the U.S. Senate. It was, in fact, the last bill to pass the Congress that year. The House vote of 206-60 (Roll #664) sent the bill to President Barack Obama for his signature.

(3) Footnote for U.S. Senate Voting Record from 2010.

In the U.S. Senate there was only one roll call vote on the legislation and that was on December 9, 2010. The vote was on procedural motion to break a filibuster by Senators Coburn and Enzi against the bill and to invoke “cloture” to allow the bill to be brought up for debate. The vote was 57-42 (Roll #269), just short of the required 60 votes to break the filibuster and allow the legislation to be brought up for debate on the Senate floor.

After that vote, Senators Mark Kirk, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski publicly declared that if legislation were brought up again they would vote for cloture and support the bill. Because of the public statements by Senators Kirk , Collins, and Murkowski, Senators Coburn and Enzi negotiated a compromise that was subsequently approved by the Senate on December 22, 2010. This vote was conducted through a procedure called “Unanimous Consent” where there is no roll call vote but the legislation is passed when no Senator objects.

Senators are shown as having voted yes, no, or not in Congress during the first vote (Roll #269).

With that action, as mentioned above, the legislation was sent back to the U.S. House of Representatives were it was voted on, passed again, and sent to President Obama, who signed it into law on January 2, 2011.

(4) Footnote on statistics

Some of the statistics presented in the tool are in the form of a range. For example, “1 to 9, this is because the data at low levels is purposefully “masked” by either the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund or the World Trade Center Health Program to prevent the possible identification of specific participants.

“The statistics for the World Trade Center Health Program are as of September 2016 and for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund as of December 2016.
