Statement from Commissioner Daniel Nigro on Congress voting to reauthorize the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund

July 23, 2019

I thank Congress for recognizing the bravery and sacrifices of the 200 FDNY members who have lost their lives since September 11th, and the thousands more who are battling illnesses still today. By reauthorizing the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, they have made a lifelong commitment that these men and women have earned, and truly deserve.
