BTEA New York President and CEO Advocates for the 9/11 Notice Act

Louis J. Coletti co-wrote an opinion piece in AM New York with Michael Barasch, a managing partner at Barasch McGarry and legal advocate for the 9/11 community, advocating for a bill that would require businesses operating in Downtown Manhattan during the 9/11 attacks to inform their employees about their rights to health care and compensation.


Coletti also met and gave speeches with State Legislators sponsoring the bill. Coletti said: “There are estimates about 3,000 construction workers were involved in the cleanup of the World Trade Center after 9/11. Very few are aware that the health coverage provided to emergency responders is available for them as well. I urge anyone who worked here during the recovery to register.”
