New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed A4882 and S716 into law, amending provisions of the state’s workers’ compensation law for first responders, including those who volunteered for 9/11 rescue, recovery, and clean-up efforts at World Trade Center sites.

“Thousands of courageous volunteers put their lives on the line in order to save those affected by the devastation of 9/11. We will never forget their selfless acts of heroism, just as we will always be grateful for the first responders who put their lives on the line for us every day,” Gov. Murphy said in a statement. The governor added that, “[W]e send a clear message to all of our heroes: We have your back. I am proud to sign legislation that will ensure the health benefits and compensation that these incredible men and women deserve.”
