Chuck Schumer just emailed over a statement that says–assuming no Republicans play the obstructionist–the Zadroga 9/11 Health Bill will pass the Senate.
After speaking with Leader Reid, it appears that the 9-11 health bill will come up for a key vote in the Senate tomorrow, once the START Treaty is completed. It will be decision day in the Senate, and we will see once and for all who will keep their promise to never forget the heroes of 9/11.
After this vote, we believe it will be clear that a supermajority of the Senate supports this bill. With the holidays fast approaching, we urge the Republicans to not drag this debate out needlessly.
We also ask the House of Representatives to remain in session so that this bill can become law before the end of the year. For our 9/11 first responders, the finish line is finally in view.”
