Statement from Mayor Bill de Blasio on the Passage of The Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act

July 23, 2019

“The heroes who rushed to action during our city’s darkest hour put their lives on the line to protect their fellow Americans. It’s an extraordinary service and one deserving of our nation’s never-ending gratitude. With the passage of the permanent authorization of the Victim Compensation Fund, no first responder or survivor will have to worry about receiving the support they deserve. On behalf of the people of New York, I am extremely grateful to Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, Representatives Nadler and Maloney, and the entire New York delegation, as well as the responders, survivors, and activists for their resolve and for leading the charge to pass this bill.”
