‘An affirmation that Congress is keeping its promise’: House votes to renew 9/11 Victims Fund through 2090

At a vote of 402-12, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to extend the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF), which provides funds to those sickened from the World Trade Center terrorist attack.

The bill now goes to the Senate. Recently, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised advocates for the bill that there will be a Senate vote before the August Congressional recess, reports Ramsey Touchberry for Newsweek.

A statement made by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, encouraged the Senate to “vote ASAP and not let other Republicans push them to the back burner like the last time.”
