U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) released the following joint statement Wednesday announcing that they have reached a deal with Senate Republicans to pass the James Zadroga 9-11 Health and Compensation Act:

“The Christmas Miracle we’ve been looking for has arrived. Over the last 24 hours, our Republican colleagues have negotiated in good faith to forge a workable final package that will protect the health of the men and women who selflessly answered our nation’s call in her hour of greatest need. We are pleased to announce that we crafted an agreement that will allow this legislation to pass the Senate, and the House, this afternoon. We thank our Republican friends for coming together to fulfill America’s moral obligation to the heroes of 9/11.

“This has been a long process, but we are now on the cusp of the victory these heroes deserve. We would not be here without the strong leadership of Majority Leader Reid, Congresswoman Maloney, Congressman Nadler, Congressman King, Congressman Weiner, Congressman Crowley, Congressman McMahon, the entire New York Congressional delegation, and most of all, the many brave first responders and community survivors.”

--U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand
