OAKLAND – Last December, Congressman Bruce Poliquin voted in support of the omnibus funding bill, which included the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.
When the Omnibus passed Congressman Poliquin specifically and publicly noted that one of the reasons he supported the funding bill was the inclusion of this program.
However, extreme Emily Cain continues to mislead Mainers on Congressman Poliquin’s voting record.
This bill included funding for a new DDG-51 destroyer for Bath Iron Works, extended the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, and a five-year extension of the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund.
Congressman Poliquin’s support for the omnibus funding bill helps ensure that all 9/11 first-responders, such as firefighters, will receive the healthcare they greatly deserve.
