America’s Mayor and First Responders

As the City Council meets today, there’s one bill that Rudy Giuliani watchers may want to keep an eye on.

Councilman Joe Addabbo, who chairs the labor committee, has a proposal that would require the Department of Health to issue an annual report on the health of first responders that are registered with the World Trade Center Health Registry.

A medical study from the health department, depending upon how it turns out, could very possibly find its way into the opposition research portfolios of other candidates on the 2008 campaign trail.
