The responders from around the country who were directly affected by the events of 9/11 deserve access to the care they need. This legislation not only is a New York priority, but a national priority. I thank our Congressional delegation for leading this fight for the past nine years and Speaker Pelosi for her leadership and stewardship of this legislation. I commend Senators Schumer and Gillibrand for their long-standing commitment to this issue and I implore all Senators to pay the debt our nation owes to the heroes of 9/11 and pass this critical legislation."
