A hearing is underway in Washington, investigating whether the air at ground zero following the September 11Th attacks was safe to breath.
Many first responders suffering from chronic conditions blame the Environmental Protection Agency for remarks that made them think the air was safe to breath. Officials say levels were below indications of health risk and that workers were encouraged to wear protective gear but it was the city's job to follow through with supplying proper equipment.
Former Rudy Giuliani has said workers who got sick should receive the same kind of benefits as those whose loves ones died in the attack.
