Reminder: McConnell delayed reauthorization of the 9/11 victims compensation fund for weeks in 2015.
McConnell after the fund was reauthorized in 2015:
“Well, it was supported by everyone and it got passed. I’m sorry people were anxious about it.”
Mitch McConnell on 9/11 victims compensation fund and Jon Stewart:
“We have never failed to address this issue and we will address it again. I don’t know why he’s all bent out of shape. … It sounds to me like he’s looking for some way to take offense."
McConnell tells first responders that the Senate is working to renew 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund by August https://wapo.st/31Txt4p?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.3ce660ef577e …
"The Senate has agreed to vote on permanently extending the 9/11 victims fund, setting up action that will put the bill on President Donald Trump’s desk for his signature by next week.” https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/18/911-victims-fund-bill-vote-1422014 …
Senate votes to extend 9/11 victims fund 97-2, authorizing money through 2092.
The bill now goes to President Trump’s desk after passing the House 402-12 earlier this month.
