Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) Sponsors Never Forget the Heroes Act

April, 2019

U.S. Senator Roy Blunt from Missouri has agreed to sponsor the Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act (S. 546)(“Never Forget the Heroes Act“). Senator Blunt joins Republican Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

This is the third time Senator Blunt, from a state with less than one hundred confirmed 9/11 victims, has supported the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (9/11 VCF). Senator Blunt voted for the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 (the Zadroga Act). and supported the 2015 reauthorization efforts, which did not require a vote as additional funding was included in the omnibus budget.

Senator Blunt’s support is admirable in light of the relatively small number of confirmed 9/11 victims in his home state. Senators from states which much larger populations of confirmed 9/11 victims have not yet agreed to sponsor the Never Forget the Heroes Act. Below is a list of Senators from states with a large constituency of confirmed 9/11 victims who have not yet agreed to sponsor the Never Forget the Heroes Act. (The number listed next to each name is approximate total number of 9/11 victims.)
