The Zadroga Act was due to expire in October of 2016 but was extended thanks to the efforts of union coalitions, activists, and years of relentless advocacy championed by Kirsten Gillibrand, Carolyn Maloney, Jerrold Nadler, Peter King, and Chuck Schumer. The extension, entitled the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act, was included in the 2015 Omnibus spending bill signed into law by President Obama on December 18, 2015.

The Reauthorized Zadroga Act significantly increased funding for the World Trade Center Health Program (“WTCHP”) and Victim Compensation Fund (“VCF”), allowing the WTCHP to operate until late 2090 and the VCF to remain open until December 2020.
