9/11 Victim Compensation Fund renewal bill finally has a price tag: $10.2 billion

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that covering the next ten years of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund would cost $10.2 billion.

The issuing of an estimated cost is regarded by the VCF’s advocates as a step towards passage of the law.

“Now that we have the CBO score, the House should move quickly and send the bill to the Senate,” Ben Chevat, of Citizens for the Extension of the James Zadroga Act, told Michael McAuliff of the New York Daily News. 

The vote is scheduled for Friday.
