A bipartisan, filibuster-proof majority of U.S. senators have banded together in support of permanently bankrolling federal benefits for 9/11 survivors and first responders, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced Tuesday.

Gillibrand said in a statement that 60 senators — 41 Democrats and 19 Republicans — are now co-sponsoring a bill to make the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund permanently financed, meaning the ball will be entirely in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s court once the measure passes the House, as it is expected to do in the coming weeks.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I urge Senator McConnell to not stand in the way and commit to a standalone, up-or-down vote on this legislation as soon as it passes the House,” said Gillibrand, who’s getting ready for her appearance at the first Democratic 2020 debate Thursday night.

“Our 9/11 first responders are sick, they are dying, and they have already had to spend too much of their precious time traveling to Washington and fighting to convince members of Congress that making the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund permanent is the right thing to do.”
