If the Zadroga Act is not extended by Congress, it will begin to expire this October -- potentially leaving tens of thousands of first responders without care. Yet many in Washington seem to be in no big hurry to extend it. Congressional Republicans are dragging the renewal process out over supposed budgetary concerns -- leaving these brave men and women in the dark over whether or not they will have access to medical care in a few months.

Watch Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand talk about why renewing the Zadroga Act is so important with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show above -- then sign the petition telling Congress to extend health care coverage for 9/11 responders immediately.
