Push for passage of Victim Compensation Fund extension in full press this week

Tomorrow, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will meet with 9/11 rescue and recovery workers who will ask him to pass a new funding bill to care for those sickened by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

After last week’s heartbreaking testimony by retired NYPD Bomb Squad Detective Luis Alvarez, who entered hospice care shortly after testifying and a public argument with comedian Jon Stewart, McConnell will face pressure to pass the bill and finally bring the fight for coverage to an end, report Michael McAuliff, Thomas Tracy and Clayton Guse for the New York Daily News.
