The US Treasury is withholding $1.5 Million in funding for the FDNY healthcare program for the first responders of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
This has occurred despite letters filed by Representative King of NY in June and September.
The issue is part of $4 million of funding intended for reimbursement of FDNY healthcare needs of those responders. Effectively this punishes 9/11 firefighters for an issue the Treasury Department has identified with NYC Finance department.
What is NYC thinking? May cut hundreds of EMT and Paramedic jobs.
