Feb. 26 (UPI) — A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced legislation Monday to fully compensate first responders and survivors experiencing illnesses related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The bill, known as the “Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act,” would guarantee that first responders and other survivors would receive their full benefit from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and would make funding permanent.
