PBA President reacts to City/Mt. Sinai agreement to release some 9/11 data

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We appreciate the belated gesture but believe that it provides no useful information in the short term and that the city’s obligation to release information that will establish a cancer rate should still be memorialized in a law. That we are over 10 years past the events of 9/11 and this data hasn't yet been turned over, even though hundreds of responders are suffering with cancers, confirms that a legal mandate is required, one that also obligates the City to publish the numbers of responders suffering cancers without identifying them.”
