Schumer: High Chance Zadroga Act Will Be Part of Omnibus

“It is [a] highly likely, “but not certain,” that legislation to continue covering health costs for 9/11 first responders will be included in the year-end omnibus spending bill, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters Thursday” wrote Mary Ellen Mcintire of the Morning Consult.com on December 10, 2015.

“At a press conference with NYPD officers and Commissioner William Bratton and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Schumer said the first responders’ presence on Capitol Hill Thursday has made some senators who aren’t signed on to the bill “fold like playing cards.” He noted that there are enough committed ‘yes’ votes in the House and the Senate to reauthorize the funding.”
