WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott announced his co-sponsorship of the Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act. This bipartisan legislation provides funding for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, which supports 9/11 survivors and first responders who have experienced health issues following the attack.

Senator Rick Scott said, “I was in New York City on September 11, 2001, and saw the terror and devastation inflicted on our nation. Americans around the world felt this attack. But for the survivors, first responders, and families of the victims, the tragedy continues each and every day. I will always stand with the survivors, our brave first responders, and the families and loved ones of the innocent victims who were lost that day. I’m honored to support them through the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.”
