9/11 Responders Take Push To Boston

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Supporters of the 9/11 health bill feel they need just one more vote for the measure to pass in the U.S. Senate.

That’s why a group of responders is going to Boston.

“With the 400 people in Massachusetts who came to Ground Zero and are now sick, we believe Scott Brown has a moral obligation to help those people,” responders advocate John Feal told WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell.

Feal thinks the Republican Senator can be convinced. Brown has said he likes the idea of the bill, but isn’t crazy about the way it’s being paid for.

The bill has already passed in the House. Many believe that Senate passage of the James Zadroga 9/11 bill is possible with this Congress, but highly unlikely in the next one.
