Special Exhibition In DC Is To Attract Support For Passage of 9/11 Bill

Utica, NY (WIBX) – This Monday, a special exhibition will be unveiled in Washington, DC to honor the memory and sacrifice of 29 members of the New York City Police Department who lost their lives due to respiratory illnesses and cancer, due to exposure from their rescue efforts at Ground Zero.

The exhibition of the 29 Police Badges will be unveiled on Monday, (11/29) by many New York State lawmakers, including 9/11 survivors and family members, in the Hart Senate Office Building at 2:30PM. Senator Kirsten Gilibrand said it’s the first exhibition of its kind that will feature the 29 badges, which is intended to attract Republican support for the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.

The measure, if passed, will expand death benefits to Ground Zero workers who died from cancer or respiratory diseases due to exposure during recovery efforts. The Act, which is named after James Zadroga, a New York City Police Officer who died from respiratory disease, is set to be brought up for debate in the Senate this month. The work of Artist, Aggie Kenny, which feature moving sketches and depictions of 9/11 first responders during their rescue efforts will also be unveiled during the event on Monday, November 29th.
